Discussion: Developing Anti-Racist Identity & Voice in Faith Communities
September 23 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm
Note: This is a Zoom-only event.
Riverside’s Antiracism Taskforce and the Anti-Racist Coalition for Faith, Ethical & Spiritual Communities will host a Zoom talk with anti-racism leaders Rev. Joseph Barndt and Nathan Trice. Rev. Joseph Barndt is a 30-plus-year core trainer with Peoples Institute for Survival and Beyond (PISAB) and the co-founder of the Anti-Racist Coalition for Faith, Ethical & Spiritual Communities. Nathan Trice is the organizer/consultant for the Anti-Racist Coalition for Faith, Ethical & Spiritual Communities, a trainer-in-training with PISAB, and co-founder of Artists Co-Creating Real Equity (ACRE), an affinity group of PISAB.
Their discussion will focus on the PISAB Faith-Based Undoing Racism Workshop’s goal and relationship to two primary needs in religious, faith, ethical & spiritual communities:
1. A Distinct Anti-Racist Identity, and the need for tools and guidance to develop unambiguous anti-racist identities within religious, faith, ethical & spiritual communities that are consistent with their beliefs and traditions.
2. A United Anti-Racist Voice: The need for anti-racist congregations and communities to coalesce with a clear and powerful voice and actions to address racism in society.
