Faith and Justice




  • What does it mean to say someone is a racist? I certainly don’t consider myself a racist.

  • I also hear people talk about "systemic racism." What is that?

  • Why should people say, “Black Lives Matter” rather than “All Lives Matter”? Doesn’t our Faith teach that ALL lives matter?

Wednesday, August 26 -7 p.m.
