This Wednesday, August 19

1 pm ET | 12 pm CT | 11 am MT | 10 am PT.

The work of dismantling racism is not new; now more than ever we need to be reminded of the work that has moved us to today’s reality—and to name where we still need to go. 

Join us right here on Wednesday, August 19, 2020 at 12:00 p.m. CST/1:00 p.m. EST as we listen to four leaders in the movement discuss their experiences in confronting racism. These leaders will name the parallels and distinctions between their historical work and how today’s anti-racism and anti-oppression movements are different, as well as their insights about the church’s role in this work, where the church must lead the prophetic call to justice and the tension between different approaches to this work. Moderator Erin Hawkins will lead the conversation.

I join many of those who will pray for you as you seek to discern what you are called to be at this moment. May God grant you the courage to fulfill that calling. May we all open our eyes and see the misery, open our ears and hear the cries of God’s people, and, like God through the Lord Jesus Christ, be incarnate amongst them.”
