The Racial Reconciliation Experience presents NYWC attendees with opportunities to learn about and engage in conversation around current, historical and systemic issues of race and how these impact adolescents and their communities, as well as youth leaders. The RRE has two parts: • Learning Experiences include the National Civil Rights Museum; Stax Museum of American Soul Music; the NO JOKE PROJECT, a roundtable discussion between an imam, rabbi and evangelical pastor; and conversations with congregations pursuing social justice. • Sharing Experiences involve small-group gatherings allowing for intentional discussions around practical ideas between fellow youth workers.
