Thank you for joining us on Saturday, March 13, 2021, for the training prepared by the Southeastern Synod's Diversity & Justice Committee.  We gathered in breakout groups based on four areas of concentration (Racial Justice, Gender Justice, LGBTQIA+ Inclusion, and Disability Inclusion), and held a panel discussion with all four breakout session leaders.
