If you haven’t had or taken advantage of the opportunity to attend an Institute for Healing Racism (IHR), please consider doing so sometime soon. Even if you think you don’t need it–perhaps especially if you think you don’t need it–please give serious consideration to attend. I recently attended my first IHR–thinking that I didn’t really need it–and was very grateful that I did. It was immensely beneficial for me!
In Grand Rapids, IHRs are conducted both at GRCC by the Woodrick Diversity Learning Center and at the Dominican Center by the Racial Justice Institute (RJI) of the Grand Rapids Area Center for Ecumenism. The next 2 day IHR with available openings is at the Dominican Center in Grand Rapids on May 20 & 21. You can register today by clicking on the following link to GRACE’s Institutes for Healing Racism.
