Faith & Racial Justice: Changing Systems and Structures invites participants to formulate their own Christian-rooted responses to racism in their churches, workplaces, and communities.
Faith and Racial Justice turns a group of individuals into a community rooted in trust and compassion.
Through new learning from articles, videos, and resource books, it lends new insights to participants’ awareness of privilege and racism. By encouraging new spiritual practices and informed action, it cultivates an expanding community of Christians who work to dismantle racism in their respective contexts.
“Transformative is the single word that comes to mind. This program challenges us to deal with (and not just examine) the reality of racial injustice on individuals, families, and communities as well as entire segments of our country…” – John L., Participant
This program consists of eight 2½ hour sessions, as well as an opening retreat and immersion experience.
All sessions include prayer, active listening, and relationship-building.
For more information, feel free to visit the Just Faith website at https://justfaith.org/programs/ and see the “Racial Justice” tab.
Faith & Racial Justice: Changing Systems and Structures will be offered in person (virtually via Zoom if the Covid reality changes) through All Saints Parish beginning in September 2021.
Cost for the program is $30 or $40 depending on whether you need the book 40 Days of Prayer. The cost covers the cost of books and any support materials. Internet access is required since some reading material is only available online and we MAY be meeting via Zoom.

We welcome first time Just Faith program participants as well as those who have previously joined us in Just Faith programs!
The Just Faith program is structured with reading that needs to be done before each session. The sessions always involve prayer and discussion and often additional online information. We hope to provide a printed copy of the participant packet and handouts for those who read better from paper than online.
