The Racial Justice Team is excited to announce the next step in our journey toward becoming an anti-racist congregation. A local consulting group, Collaborative Organizing (CO), has agreed to lead us in our work. CO prepared and compiled the results of the recent survey on racial justice that many of us completed. Those survey results are here. Having learned something about where we are as a congregation, the CO leaders, alexandria ravenel and david greenson, have prepared three sessions for our members and friends that are, in their words, “designed to demonstrate how and where the infection of racial inequity is showing up in your organization, and work with you to address it.”
Wednesday, May 12- Pedagogy of Place We’ll dig into where we are - the City of Asheville, a UCC congregation - by exploring both history and present day, and considering where we go from here.
This last session will be held on zoom from 6:30 pm - 8 pm. Since they build on each other, participants need to attend all three of the sessions. We look forward to continuing this journey together! If you have questions, please call Dorri Sherrill at 828-691-5554.
