Seeking Antiracism Discussion on Zoom

Tuesday, August 11, 2020 at 7:00pm

Antiracism is an active process of acknowledging, identifying and eliminating racism by changing attitudes, systems, policies and practices so that power is redistributed and shared equitably (definition adapted from NAC International Perspectives: Women and Global Solidarity). Recent events – COVID 19 and people dying in police custody – have highlighted inequities in the way people are treated and systems are built and maintained. There are a group of members at Faith having a robust conversation about how we are called to justice, mercy, compassion and love – following in the footsteps of Jesus. Perhaps you are ready to join the conversation.

There are good conversations happening. This is not easy. We do not agree. But we grow when we struggle together.

Contact Rev. Laura Norvell to receive the Zoom credentials for this gathering (link, phone numbers, password, etc.).
