Mar 3: Living Into the Difficult: Race, Racism, & Journeying Into Anti-Racism
We live in a time when authentically exploring the meaning and impact of race and anti-racism could not be more important for multi-racial faith communities.
Please join us for a day of workshop and retreat designed to facilitate justice-informed dialogue, listening and response. Together we will engage the challenging but deeply transformative work of exploring how frameworks of racial repair might enable a new approach to interracial relationships and the journey of anti-racism as people of faith.
Rev. Drs. Melanie Harris and Jennifer Harvey will draw on their experience and expertise to guide us in authentic exploration through small and large group discussions. The day is designed to empower both individual and collective growth. All are welcome to attend.
