The Network for Dismantling Racism presents:
First Steps to Dismantling Racism

The Synod of the Sun Network for Dismantling Racism presents a series of four webinars on First Steps to Dismantling Racism, led by Warren Chalklen, Ph.D. 

 

This four-week webinar is the first presentation by the Network for Dismantling Racism, a group of concerned Presbyterians from all 11 presbyteries of the Synod of the Sun. In the coming months, N4DR will present additional programs and events that will address the issues of anti-racism and structural racism.

 

The webinars will be held on four successive Fridays, beginning August 14th and going through September 4th. Each webinar will be held from Noon-1:30pm. These sessions include:

Session 1 - What Does it Mean to be Anti-Racist?

Session 2 - Engaging Colleagues and Students in Anti-Racist Learning Moments.

Session 3 - Identify and Combat Institutional and Structural Racism.

Session 4- Anti-Racism and Anti-Oppression.

 

When you register for any of the webinars, you will be provided with a workbook for the program.

 

Sponsorship for this and future N4DR events has been provided by all 11 Presbyteries of the Synod of the Sun: Presbytery of Arkansas, Cimarron Presbytery, Eastern Oklahoma Presbytery, Grace Presbytery, Indian Nations Presbytery, Mission Presbytery, Presbytery of New Covenant, Palo Duro Presbytery, Presbytery of the Pines, Presbytery of South Louisiana and Tres Rios Presbytery.
