Institutional racism is the differential access to the goods, services, and opportunities of society based on one’s race. It is mostly implicit (rather than explicit) in our ideas and attitudes, so it is often unnoticed. AHCC, working with the National Conference for Community and Justice, is pleased to be able to offer training focused specifically on recognizing and undoing institutional racism. We want our staff and volunteers to be able to recognize institutional racism if they see it at our church, in the community/neighborhood, and in the world. We will work to develop common language about what institutional racism is, and learn to use the tools to undo it. Historically, recognizing and eliminating institutional racism has been one of our church’s strengths, and there are new and important issues still ahead for us.
