Racial Justice and Healing With Celene Ibrahim, Ph.D.
Live, Virtual Program: Sunday, November 8, 2020, 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. (EDT) $35.00 (limited scholarship funds are available)
Drawing upon excerpts from the writings and teachings of prominent anti-racism advocates from a variety of spiritual and religious backgrounds, this workshop offers inspiration and community for those invested in the work of racial justice and advocacy. The program invites participants to probe teachings of racial equity in the context of their own religious and spiritual communities of belonging. The program goal is to create space for exchanging ideas across communities of practice and to expand awareness of religious and spiritual resources, paradigms, teachings, and efforts to reverse trends of bigotry and to facilitate communal healing and connection. The workshop caters to a U.S. context, but welcomes participant reflections on how racial categories and dynamics of privilege and disenfranchisement function in other contexts. Given the traumas and inequities of the past and present, how do we show up with wisdom and integrity in our shared world?
This live, virtual program will take place via Zoom videoconferencing technology. You do not need a Zoom subscription. It is free and downloadable at https://zoom.us/.
