Do you want to address racism, but don’t know where to begin?
Faith & Racial Equity: Exploring Power & Privilege is an 8-session program that awakens groups to the economic systems, public policies, cultural norms, and hidden biases that empower some and oppress others.
The first half of the program lays the groundwork for understanding and identifying racial privilege. Sessions 5-8 take a deeper dive into specific issues related to power and privilege, including affirmative action, the school-to-prison pipeline, disparities within the criminal justice system, and biases in media representation. As with all JustFaith Ministries’ programs, participants will explore how their faith should inform their response to their learning, as well as discern action steps for working toward racial equity in their own communities.
Series Goals:
• Develop awareness of the ways that racial privilege impacts our communities and ourselves.
• Through a deep dive into the Gospel of Luke, learn how Jesus’s teachings guide us in seeking racial justice in today’s world.
• Learn practical tools for becoming anti-racist, and for effecting change in our communities.
