Requirements

The program requires a significant commitment and one that needs to be entered into with some prayerful discernment and the ability to make space in your life for personal enrichment. The program consists of:

 

  • Attendance of all scheduled sessions.

  • Weekly reading and viewing of videos which must be completed before each session.

  • Each phase contains an immersion experience where you will have the opportunity to interact with those in the community who are living in poverty. These experiences are usually held at a local nonprofit on Saturdays - to be determined and dependent on COVID guidelines.

  • A retreat is held at the start of the program to learn more about each other. An onsite retreat will be on a Saturday between the hours of 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. For those on Zoom there will be a one hour experience. To be determined and dependent on COVID guidelines.

Registration

Faith and Race Equity: Exploring Power and Privilege - Phase 1

Onsite: Wednesdays, Sept. 29-Nov. 11 | 7:00-9:00 p.m. | Spirituality Center | $50
Online: Thursdays, Sept. 30-Nov. 18 | 7:00-9:00 p.m. | on Zoom | $50

Faith and Race Equity 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.

 

Note: this program 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.
