Antiracism 101: Starting the Work Change Requires

Sunday, June 7th as we gathered around the sanctuary steps, united in the conviction that Black Lives Matter, we affirmed that the work of dismantling systemic racism, and ending state-sanctioned violence against black bodies requires our ongoing commitment to doing the work, and many of you have heard the call. Due to higher-than-anticipated enrollment, we are expanding our summer reading series to four sections. Zoom links for each will be sent out on Friday.

We will discuss the aims of the series, review the schedule of readings, and prepare ourselves to begin this crucial work together. Beginning the week following Sunday, June 14th, we will meet in four sections:
Tuesdays 8:00-9:30am
Wednesdays 4:00-5:30pm
Wednesdays 6:00-7:30pm
Thursdays 12:00-1:30pm

We will be discussing these books:
"White Fragility: Why It's So Hard for White People to Talk About Racism" - June 10, 17 & 24
I'm Still Here: Black Dignity in a World Made for Whiteness" - July 8, 15 & 22
"How to Be an Antiracist" - August 5, 12 & 26
