Racial Equity Institute Training

April 21, 2019


Hayes Barton UMC is proud to host an REI (Racial Equity Institute) Phase 1 Training, sponsored by Raleigh's  Organizing Against Racism (OAR) chapter, on July 11and 12, 2019, from 8:30-5:15 each day. The training will be provided by the Racial Equity Institute (REI), a Greensboro-based organization that conducts such programs across the country.  The training is an in-depth study of historical, cultural, structural and institutional analysis of racism and provides an opportunity for open discussion in a racially diverse group.


Participants receive: 2 breakfasts, 2 lunches, 2 snacks, and a detailed electronic workbook after the training for the total training cost of $295 per person except groups of three or more are offered a cost of $275 per person. The student rate is $175 and alumni rate is $35 per participant. A sliding scale scholarship is also offered for those  individuals for whom the stated cost may be a deterrent to attending. Pre-registration for this training is currently open for Hayes Barton members and friends before registration is open to the general public. If you would like to pre-register or have any questions, please contact Lee Hoffman by email phoffman4@nc.rr.com or phone 919-280-4841.  The deadline for pre-registration is April 30, 2019.


Hayes Barton has several members who  previously attended the training and would be glad to speak to you about the content and value of the program! They are: Jackie Abbott, Phillip & Lee Hoffman, Mary Laurence & Andrew Cook, Doug McMillan, Helen & Freddy Johnson, Anna Neal Blanchard, Donna Seligson, Nancy & Ned Nutt, Carolyn & Paul Carruth, and Sheila Lee Carr.


"REI believes that organizations often work for equity with

multiple understandings of racism that rely more on personal feelings and popular opinion. The lack of a common analysis creates complications to the goal of eliminating racial and ethnic disparities and producing equitable outcomes." - racialequityinstitute.com
