Confronting Racism Retreat September 18, 7:30 – 9:30, and September 19, 10:00 – 11:30 and 2:00 – 3:00
The current pandemic has thrown the world into liminal space and has created the context for unprecedented racial healing to occur. But it won’t come easy, and it has not been without cost. The killings of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, and Breonna Taylor, and countless others, the nightly protests, the tearing down of Confederate symbols, the call for police reform – where will it end? Where will it lead? How can you be a part of the needed change? This retreat will help participants become more aware of their own racial biases and the systemic racism we live collectively within. Join Anthony Gaboton and Joel Blunk of Richmond Hill for an intensive 24-hour men’s retreat to include storytelling, learning, personal exploration, and tools for constructive dialogue around race you can apply in your own context.
