Racial justice training for all active ministry personnel was mandated at the 39th General Council 2006. The proposal came out of a long history of the United Church's engagement with issues of social justice. In 2000, the United Church adopted its Anti-Racism Policy statement; racial justice training is one effort to help the church continue to live out its principles.

As of 2017 we're also opening this program to all members of the church. The Program Committe on Programs, Mission and Ministry notes, "The current form of the racial justice training is receiving very good feedback, and it is therefore particularly commended to people serving in any leadership capacity within the church."

The Online Process

We're going to use Internet tools and telephone conference call technology to simulate a face-to-face workshop. Participants will be asked to dial in to the conference call system at the appointed time, using an ordinary telephone. They'll also be asked to use an Internet browser to navigate to the page where we'll be showing a PowerPoint presentation.

The telephone conference call system is specially designed to allow for break-out groups, and much of the work will be in small group discussion.You will connect to the conference call via a toll-free long distance number; there will be no additional cost.

Cost: $50 -- $10 discount if you pay online
