Racism Class

July 17 @ 10:45 am - 5:00 pm

Summer Racism Class Continues: The Social Justice Committee of FUMC is offering an adult class using the resource White Privilege: Let’s Talk—A Resource for Transformational Dialogue , which is an adult curriculum from the United Church of Christ that’s designed to invite church members to engage in safe, meaningful, substantive, and bold conversations on race. The writers of the curriculum will lead participants through four areas of focus: telling the story of your spiritual journey through the lens of race; looking at the dynamic of a culture in which whiteness is the established norm; learning how American attaches a cash value to whiteness; and inviting the participants to commit to becoming an ally in the pursuit of racial equity. We will meet on the following Sundays at 10:45am: July 23, August 6, August 27.  Child care will be available for these sessions, upon advance request (to Ed Miner).
