Registration for new Dialogue Groups

Dialogue Groups About Racism are Now Enrolling for Fall 2023!

We all want to see improvements in the racial disparities in our society, but it can be difficult to have deep, meaningful conversations about these issues. The Sacred Ground program uses discussion groups led by trained facilitators in order to make this conversation safer and more impactful. Groups of 6-9 participants and two trained facilitators meet for 90 minutes over the course of eleven sessions. During this time they watch and discuss films exploring the history of racism in American society and begin to envision a different future together. Roughly 150 people in the Brunswick area have participated in these groups so far, and the feedback has been so positive that we are starting additional groups in the fall. We plan to offer both in-person groups (at Curtis Library) and Zoom groups at a variety of times. We hope you will join the conversation!

Please note: While this program began in The Episcopal Church, these groups are specifically designed to be interfaith and are NOT religious in nature.
