Facing Ferguson/Facing Ourselves

Session III: Effect Change

Sunday, Nov. 9, 2014

2-4:30 p.m.

Immanuel United Church of Christ

 

In the third session, participants will continue to build upon the work begun in sessions I and II. As we consider immediate ways to confront racial polarization and inequity in our region, the event will focus on two categories of active engagement:

  1. Combating racism directly – challenging and dismantling the warped institutional systems and policies that are currently in place
  2. Combating the effects of racism – direct service/ripple effects (i.e. tutoring, working at a health fair, helping kids learn conflict resolution skills, voter registration/souls to the polls, etc.).

It is our belief that every hour we spend working in either of these categories really matters, and it all adds up. Additionally, as an integral element of our involvement we believe it is essential that we each continue to do our own self-work and that we commit to engage purposefully toward building a greater sense of community and kinship within and across racial lines.

To that end, we strongly encourage you to attend Session III of Facing Ferguson/Facing Ourselves. We also welcome you to invite family, friends, and colleagues whom you think will benefit from the process and be interested in contributing their time and talents to this effort going forward.
