Confront the realities of racial injustice, and examine why it needs to be addressed, as well as the part you can play in dismantling racism.
Acknowledge your part in perpetuating racism, identify direct actions you can take, and make the commitment to dismantling it.
This series, taught by Dr. Enid LaGesse and Dr. Jayne Osgood, is grounded in the Baptismal Covenant and the four-part labyrinth of Becoming the Beloved Community of truth-telling, proclaiming the dream, practicing The Way of Love and repairing the breach.
Come, build skills for both inward discernment and outward action.
