Many people are asking, What Can We Do? How Can I Help? Where Do I Start?
RACIAL JUSTICE FORUM
Please join Deacon Ari Wolfe for a 3-week Racial Justice Forum
Utilizing educator Dr. Eddie Moore, Jr.'s 21-Day Racial Equity Habit Building Challenge
Participants commit to doing one thing each day (read, watch, listen, discuss, etc.) to "further (their) understanding of power, privilege, supremacy, oppression, and equity." The course work and amount of time spent is individually chosen and self-paced - links to a wide variety of resources will be provided, as well as a daily tracking tool. We will meet together weekly and use a contemplative Celtic Christian lens as a framework, to discuss what we have learned, areas of discomfort or growth, insights or thoughts from the previous week's practice and how we can respond as people of faith. We encourage those who participated in 2020 to join us once again, and re-commit to a deeper antiracism understanding and practice.
This 21-Day Racial Justice Forum will be held on 4 consecutive Mondays during Lent at 12:00pm to 1:00pm PDT via Zoom, beginning February 22nd ending on March15.
This forum is free and open to all, but registration is required for entrance.
This course is foundational and a prerequisite for our deeper dive racial justice programming.
Please come join us!
