A look at systemic racism and how we can be healers and unifiers
The profound truth is that all of us are created in God’s image and each of us deserves dignity and respect. This moment, when we are so starkly reminded of the pain of systemic racism in our world, calls for the courage to look at the blind spots in ourselves and our institutions that allow racism to fester in our own communities. We invite you to join us for an evening with Dr. Cynthia Ganote as she helps unveil the reality of systemic and historic racism which privileges white people at the expense of people of color. If we are to be instruments of healing in our communities, it requires us to open our eyes and open our hearts to the pain of racism, and then to take meaningful action. Please join us for this conversation.
“The word of God allows for no complacency; it constantly impels us to acts of love.”
This event is free of charge for anyone who would like to attend. However, we invite you to consider making a donation, on a sliding fee scale, which will go entirely to Precious Blood Ministry of Reconciliation and their work for justice in communities on the Southside of Chicago. https://www.pbmr.org/
We have a goal of donating a minimum of $846 to Precious Blood Ministry of Reconciliation and hope you’ll consider helping us meet this goal! 846 reflects the 8 minutes and 46 seconds that former police officer Derek Chauvin knelt on George Floyd’s neck before he died.
