One of the topics we will be exploring together is White Supremacy Culture– what is it and how does it show up in institutions? If you are able, please take time before Thursday to read Tema Okun’s description of White Supremacy Culture on this page: https://www.whitesupremacyculture.info/what-is-it.html
Come with your reflections, your questions and your curiosity!
The Presbytery partnering with NEXT Church to lead this foundational workshop, rooted in an understanding of historical and systemic racism. It is intended to equip participants to lead and participate in constructive conversations within their congregations and the Presbytery that promote racial equity and begin dismantling racism within ourselves and our institutions.
