Attend an Institute for Healing Racism


As a member of the Board of The Grand Rapids Area Center for Ecumenism (GRACE), I want to encourage you to attend one of our upcoming Institutes for Healing Racism (IHR). As I write, we still have openings for the upcoming IHR on October 14 & 15.

Please click on a date to register:

It is our belief that the Institutes for Healing Racism model of working on racial relationships have great value for the people of our community. The discipline and focus provided by these dialogues will begin the healing for all participants, regardless of ethnicity. This step of greater awareness and sensitivity links naturally to action steps which will have an impact on the quality of life for everyone in our community.

GRACE/RJI Institutes for Healing Racism address the history and reality of racism and its impact, institutional racism, white privilege, healing, and promote movement into commitment and action.

Generally, the schedule runs on Thursdays from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and Fridays from 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

Light refreshments are available beginning at 8:00 a.m. and lunch is provided.

The cost for this Institute is $200 per person (non-profit) or $300 (for profit) and $100 for students.

All Sessions are scheduled at:
Dominican Center (at Marywood)
2025 East Fulton, Grand Rapids, MI 49503

Questions? Email Jennifer at the GRACE office.
