► Dismantling Racism
Mondays 7:00 – 9:00
At this pivotal moment in the history of race and racism in the United States, people of faith have a fresh opportunity to make the most of heightened public awareness of racism, to recognize new hope that long-overdue change may finally be possible, and to live into the “Beloved Community” as a manifestation of God’s love for all people. Being anti-racist demands that we go beyond the passivity of simply not being racist personally but instead become actively involved in dismantling racism systemically. As people of faith, we are commanded to love our neighbors as ourselves – even in ways that radically challenge who we might understand OUR NEIGHBORS to be.
