Racial Justice from the H.E.A.R.T. Retreat

  • Mariawald Renewal Center 1094 Welsh Road Reading, PA, 19607 United States (map)

Join us for our Fall Retreat for Change Makers, Teachers and People of Faith!

Have a Strong Voice for Racial Justice and Refill your Cup.

Racial justice work is emotionally taxing. It requires courage, vulnerability, humility and trust in forces that we cannot see.

This is in addition to constantly expanding our intellectual understanding of systemic oppression and institutional bias.

Yet all too often, leaders go it alone. They feel guilty for taking a breather or giving to themselves.

But a tired leader is a danger to the community! A tired or emotionally spent leader may feel angry most of the time. Lose their sense of humor. Attack others or turn on themselves.

Racial justice from the H.E.A.R.T. Retreat is an opportunity to renew while learning how to be more effective in conversations for racial justice and diversity.

This retreat is for you…

If you’re feeling overwhelmed by how much there is to do.

If you’re afraid to say the wrong thing, but ready to have a voice.

If you’ve been called out for being racist or biased and you want to do better.

If you feel like you’re the voice in the wilderness in your faith community.

If you are looking for compassion, clarity and leadership from a woman of color .
