Healing Our World: Addressing the Wounds of Racism
June 23 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pmFree
Racism, bias, and hate take an incalculable toll on people throughout the U.S. Despite slow and hard-won progress in the past few decades, racism is still deeply embedded in our society and ways of thinking. Recent events show us that our country and the global community will not heal until we courageously and honestly address the damage inflicted by racism and engage in the work of transforming the beliefs and systems that uphold it.
Our storytellers this month will reflect on the conversations about racism in their faith communities, where they see unexpected successes, and how they’re tackling the challenges of working toward change.
