We are looking forward to the gathering of the Synod community next month when the 2018 Synod Assembly convenes. We are also excited about our Pre-Assembly event (which immediately precedes the Assembly) and want to be sure to invite you!
On Thursday and Friday, September 20-21 we will once again be hosting Crossroads Anti-Racism Organizing & Training to facilitate a seminar on race and dismantling racism at the Desmond Hotel & Conference Center in Albany, NY.
This event is open to everyone in the Synod community, regardless of whether you're attending the Assembly itself or not. This seminar will be valuable to both those who have attended Crossroads trainings before and those who have not, taking prior participants deeper while also introducing newcomers to foundational materials.
Each of us comes to anti-racism work with different backgrounds and experiences. We would love for you to join us, as we know our shared experience will be richer with your presence.
The Pre-Assembly schedule and other related details are below. To ensure adequate lodging and materials for all participants, the registration deadline is Friday, August 24. Register now to reserve your spot!
This promises to be another wonderful opportunity to connect with presbyterians from across the Synod, share thoughtful conversations about the issues of our times, and delve deeper into self-understanding as individuals and communities.
We hope you will join us!
