Subject: CWM – WCC Antiracist in Christ Webinars

Dear Rev. Mpetsheni  ,

Greetings from CWM.

We would love to invite you and members of your church to be part of a series of webinars, “Anti-racist in Christ?” This will be hosted by CWM together with the World Council of Churches.

In the lead up to CWM’s act of repentance and apology for our involvement in the legacies of slavery on August 23, 2021, we are offering these series of webinars for our churches as a means for us to gather and deepen our shared commitment toward becoming antiracist churches.

The ecumenical webinar series would ask questions around ways our churches engage in anti-racist practice. Speakers from Africa, Asia, Caribbean, the Americas, Europe, Middle-East, and the Pacific will be part of the webinar conference series.

Your involvement through participating in any of the webinar series matters.

Dates: June 14-17, 2021

There would be two sessions per day.

June 14: Setting racism within it colonial and neo-imperial context

June 15: Mission agencies legacies

June 16: Models for anti-racist action for white and other dominant racial groups

June 17: Anti-racist markers for churches
