Faith & Racial Equity: Exploring Power & Privilege
Mondays starting August 3,  6:30pm-9pm via Zoom
 
“We can disagree and still love each other unless your disagreement is rooted in my oppression and denial of my humanity and right to exist.”
– James Baldwin
 
The St. James Cathedral Life, Peace and Justice Commission invites you to participate in Faith & Racial Equity: Exploring Power & Privilege, 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 series will introduce participants to a framework for understanding and recognizing racial disparities in power and privilege. You will also dive into specific issues, including affirmative action, the school-to-prison pipeline, the criminal justice system, and powerful biases in media representation.
 
Please note that Faith and Racial Equity is not for the faint of heart! This series is for those  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.
 
This series consists of eight 2½-hour sessions which include prayer, dialogue, active listening, and relationship-building.   There will also be a retreat to build community and Scriptural grounding. Reading materials cost approximately $40. Scholarships available.

Information or Registration: Patrick Barredo, Director of Social Outreach & Advocacy, pbarredo@stjames-cathedral.org or 206-619-2879.
