The free "Examining Privilege" Workshop, originally scheduled for January, has been rescheduled for June 6 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. It will feature Rev. Dr. Alice Hunt, president and associate professor of Biblical Hermeneutics & Religious Leadership at Chicago Theological Seminary (CTS). She says this about the CTS White Privilege Glasses Project, upon which this workshop is based: "Racism is the pre-eminent social justice issue of our time. The purpose of this spot is to challenge people to see the oppressive ubiquity of racism in our world — and inspire dialogue."
Hunt added that "while the project isn't focused on audiences of color but on white people instead," the school wants to share the video widely. To that end, it is supplementing the video with additional resources. The seminary has discussion guides and other materials available for schools, churches and organizations that wish to have their own discussions on racial privilege.

This workshop satisfies one unit of the professional ethics training requirements for authorized ministers in the Florida Conference. The registration deadline is June 4, and you can register here.
