What else is the Fellowship doing for racial justice?
Our Racial Justice Action Team seeks to educate the congregation on issues of white privilege and ally-ship. We respond when asked by people of color to participate in activities, but we do not presume to lead or give direction. Members of our congregation also continue to support the work of racial justice, both in the congregation and in the wider community. We facilitate conversations about diversity, and support the efforts of those seeking to break cycles of systemic inequality, e.g., in prisons, schools, government, and various for-profit and not for-profit organizations.
How Can I Participate in Racial Justice?
We have a lot to learn and we can’t do it alone. We invite you to join us in our work for justice, equity and compassion in our world.
First, come to services! Our services are at 9:00 and 10:45 a.m. every Sunday during the program year and at 10:00 a.m. in the summer.
Second – attend one of the opportunities available at the Fellowship:
- An all-Fellowship book read, Waking up White by Debby Irving;
- Beloved Conversations (An eight week course on Ethnicity and Race);
- Small groups and one-time opportunities for deeper reflection on race.
All groups are advertised in the Fellowship’s newsletter, The Weekly Scroll. Membership in The Racial Justice Team, itself, will open when its mission is reaffirmed by the congregation at the Annual Meeting in June 2017.
