Dismantling Racism Commission

Dismantling Racism Commission

The Commission organizes anti-racism training for diocesan leadership and others, it sponsors educational events that focus on issues of racism and white privilege, and it works to “dismantle” racism in both the church and wider communities.

The Commission sponsored a pilgrimage to Washington, D.C., March 28-30, 2008, which culminated in the observance of “Vermont Day” on Sunday at Washington National Cathedral. The Cathedral capped its “Racial Reconciliation and Justice Week,” that day in a celebration of the ministry and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. on the 40th anniversary of his last sermon, “Remaining Awake Through a Great Revolution.” The May 2008 Mountain Echo has an article and photos of the pilgrimage.
