Faith & Racial Equity:
Exploring Power & Privilege

  • Do you want to address racism in your community, but you don’t know where to begin?  
  • Do you want to learn how to advocate for racial equity within your family, church and community? 
  • Do you long for a space to ask hard questions about race and privilege? 
  • Help us create a world in which injustice is replaced with solidarity and care. 

 

St. Vincent de Paul Parish wants to address racism and racial inequality in our society. We are going to do this by offering JustFaith’s series on Faith and Racial Equity: Exploring Power and Privilege. This is an eight week series that will meet weekly for two and a half hours.

These eight weeks will help us to understand how our economic systems, public polices, cultural norms, and hidden bias work to empower some and oppress others. This series will help us to understand racial disparities in power and privilege. Most importantly this series will use our faith to help transform us and our world.

It will begin on July 11 with a day of reflection and then we will have three to five different JustFaith groups that will meet.

You will need to purchase two books for this series; “I am Still Here; Black Dignity in a World Made for Whiteness” by Austin Channing Brown and, “White Fragility: Why It’s so Hard for White People to Talk about Racism” by Robin DiAngelo.

To register please click the link below. When you register let us know what day and time you would like to meet, that way you can meet when is most convenient for you. All of the JustFaith groups will be on Zoom which means you can experience the series from the comfort of your own home.
