Implicit Bias Training (Online) 
Feb. 24, March 3, March 10 

Learning how to be anti-racist is a great practice to start during Lent. Join Pastor Erik for 3 online sessions on Implicit Bias. Racism isn’t always about what we consciously think or believe. Together we’ll learn how to recognize, question, and transform the implicit biases we all have.

Registration is closed. Contact us if you wish to join a future session.
