Faith and Racial Equity: Exploring Power & Privilege

Do you want to address racism in your faith community,
but don’t know where to begin?

Presented through the lens of the Christian faith, Faith & Racial Equity: Exploring Power & Privilege is an 8-week module 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 module introduces a framework for understanding and recognizing racial disparities in power and privilege. Sessions 5-8 take a deeper dive into specific issues related to power and privilege, including affirmative action, the school-to-prison pipeline, the criminal justice system, and powerful biases in media representation. As with all JustFaith 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.

Please note that ‘Faith and Racial Equity’ is not for the faint of heart! The module is designed for participants who are willing to wrestle with hard questions and take an honest look at their own attitudes, assumptions, and choices. However, through spiritual grounding and community-building, participants find support and belonging throughout their journey to personal transformation and social action.”

“Faith and Racial Equity” will be offered at All Saints Parish, St. Anthony Campus, beginning in January 2020. 

Cost for the program is $45 which covers the cost of books and helps with registration. Internet access is required since some reading material is only available online.  Anyone without access to the internet can contact the Parish Office for available service.
