You’re invited to a Virtual Roundtable Discussion, hosted by the Office of Race Relations. Join us on Tuesday, May 11 at 6:00 pm EDT for this Free Webinar Event.
“Preaching & Teaching Antiracsim”
The CRCNA Office of Race Relations staff invites you to a conversation with prominent leaders from across the US who are integrating faith and justice in their life work. One of the focus questions will be:
"Why is it difficult to teach about racism? What is behind it?"
We hope this conversation will serve as a launching point for viewers who share a faith in Christ but have diverse views on historical and political narratives; convictions on the voice Christians should have on the topic; and what it means to be salt and light to our racialized communities. We look forward to open and honest conversation that may be uncomfortable for some, but will be meaningful for all.
