Testimonials from previous participants:
“The Jubilee III experience far surpassed what I had been expecting. First Unitarian Church of Honolulu had participated in two previous in-person Jubilees and I just couldn’t imagine a virtual experience being so successful. It became obvious that the trainers had gone above and beyond in preparation; the virtual experience was, in some ways, better because of the face-to-face feeling of intimacy on screen that can happen even when someone speaks to the whole group, the close honesty afforded by break-out rooms, and the relatively long meal breaks, which make one feel totally refreshed and able to think clearly for the next session.
Also, it became clear that a lot of effort had gone into honing and making the curriculum itself even better than before. It was like peeling an onion; we were able to delve into new and deeper levels of understanding.
Thank you to the trainers for this great opportunity to gain crucial points of awareness around racial justice!”— Jill Rabinov
“First Unitarian Church of Honolulu (FUCH) is honored to have experienced the first virtual Zoom Jubilee training. This was our third Jubilee Anti-Racism training and I was curious how the Zoom Format would work for such a hands on and self-reflective experience. Although we were using the Zoom format we still had the benefit and feel of getting to know other Jubilee members on a more personal level.
This training was extremely informative and worthwhile, covering new material that we did not receive in the previous 2 Jubilee trainings. This training will give you a lot of food for thought as well as tools to use in these challenging times.” — Allison Jacobs
