Faith & Racial Equity:
Exploring Power and Privilege
June 7th through July 26th
Monday Evenings 7:00 – 8:30 p.m
Thirty parishioners completed the program earlier this year. Their experience has spurred them to continue learning and find opportunities to engage in the struggle for racial justice.
This program awakens participants to the economic systems, public policies, cultural norms, and hidden biases that empower some and oppress others. Participants learn a framework for understanding and recognizing racial disparities in power and privilege and dive into specific issues related to these dynamics, including affirmative action, the school-to-prison pipeline, the criminal justice system, and powerful biases in media representation. Details will follow next week.
