Called to Be Anti-Racist: Ideas for Christians
March 16 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
With special guest, Jessie Bazan, M.Div., Writer & Theologian, Collegeville Institute for Ecumenical and Cultural Research
(RSVP by March 10) Zoom Presentation
The call of the current moment—a moment built on hundreds of years of oppression—requires people to discern the steps each can take to become more anti-racist. What might this discernment look like? Fr. Bryan Massingale highlights six places to start in his National Catholic Reporter article, “The assumptions of white privilege and what we can do about it.” This presentation will outline Massingale’s steps and suggest ways fellow Christians discerning how to be anti-racist can take action through study, prayer, and work around a related social issue.
Jessie Bazan, M.Div, helps Christians explore their life callings in her work with the Collegeville Institute for Ecumenical and Cultural Research. She is editor and coauthor of Dear Joan Chittister: Conversations with Women in the Church (Twenty-Third Publications) and a regular columnist for U.S. Catholic magazine. Her work has also appeared in the National Catholic Reporter and on Catholic Women Preach.
