CROSSROADS WORKSHOP-“RACISM, POWER, & DOMINANCE IN THE US AND THE CHURCH”
Date: Saturday, December 9th
Time: 9 am – 5 pm
FREE of CHARGE
Lunch will be provided, but donations are WELCOME!
“Racism, Power, & Dominance in the US and the Church” introduces participants to a working definition of system racism and considers how culture, cultural dominance, and organizations, including the church, are intentionally and unintentionally complicit in systemic racism. A rationale will be explored for the need to develop within the church a deeper understanding of the historic and legal roots and contemporary manifestations of cultural dominance and racism. Participants will build their capacity to engage in constructive dialogue about white supremacy and racism and will practice analyzing the ways systemic racism operates in U.S. society and their congregation. Finally, participants will explore individual and organizational strategies aimed at interrupting the ways systemic racism operates in our society.
