In case you missed it: EXPLORING WHITE NATIONALISM
The Catholic Racial Justice Collaborative, Pax Christi USA and the Institute for Peace and Justice held an engaging and enlightening discussion, Exploring White Nationalism, with Rev. Joseph A.

upcoming events: 
 

Toward Liberation : February 7–9,  9:00 am–5:00 pm 
Crossroads Antiracism Organizing and Training is offering a three-day workshop, Toward Liberation, in the College Church ballroom.  This dynamic workshop explores a power analysis of white supremacy and systemic racism in the United States.  Cohorts of participants are introduced to key frameworks for describing and understanding how white supremacy and systemic racism operate within institutions and deepen their learning through large group discussions, experiential activities, small group sharing, and individual reflection. This workshop will be open to the public.  We ask that participants have previous experience engaging with Crossroads' analysis of systemic racism by having participated in one or more of our workshops; the list of options can be found online at our website. If you are interested, please contact Lisa Burks or Winnie Sullivan.

Black History Month Prayer Service : February 11,  2:00–4:00 pm
