The Diocesan Racial Justice and Reconciliation Committee (RJRC) presents a webinar by author Debby Irving in the first of a three-part anti-racism series. On Monday, January 11, at 7 pm, Irving, the well-known author of Waking Up White, will lead a webinar exploring her story of waking up to discover the racial divide in our nation. Registration opens soon.
The second part of the series, the 21 Day Racial Equity Challenge, begins on Sunday, January 17. The challenge is designed to create dedicated time and space to build more effective social justice habits, particularly those dealing with issues of race, power, privilege and leadership. Participants will receive daily challenges, such as reading an article, listening to a podcast or reflecting on personal experience.
Participation in an activity like this helps us to discover how racial and social injustice impact our communities, to connect with one another, and to identify ways to dismantle racism and other forms of discrimination. This is an exciting opportunity to dive deep into racial equity and social justice. To help participants reflect on what they discover, on January 17, 24 and 31, at the conclusion of each of each week of the challenge, the RJRC will host an hour-long Zoom conversation to connect with one another on the topics covered in the previous week and ways they affect our communities and even our churches. Details and registration are forthcoming.
