The General Commission on Religion and Race (GCORR) is offering an online course beginning September 1. From their website: “This online course centers on one big idea: that anti-racism is anything that actually interrupts and dismantles racism. As a 101 course, the content will focus on defining anti-racism, identifying anti-racism, and practicing anti-racism by interrupting racism. The three sessions will roughly fall under these categories: theory (big idea), practice [working with the big idea), and personal (implementing the big idea).
By taking this course, students will:
- Learn how to explain anti-racism to your church siblings or family
- Build your skills in interrupting racism in real-time
- Practice becoming stronger against white fragility – overcome the temptation to give up when the realities of racism become intense
- Create a foundational toolbox to interrupt and dismantle racism that will ground any other anti-racism work you do”
This is a self-directed online course with readings, videos, and worksheets to help you take the course at your own pace.
Registration is open now for $39.99 with a discount for the first 100 persons.
