Faith & Racial Equity: Exploring Power & Privilege Study
Faith & Racial Equity: Exploring Power & Privilege is an 10-session program that awakens groups to the economic systems, public policies, cultural norms, and hidden biases that empower some and oppress others.
The first half of the program lays the groundwork for understanding and identifying racial privilege. We will then take a deeper dive into specific issues related to power and privilege, including affirmative action, the school-to-prison pipeline, disparities within the criminal justice system, and biases in media representation. We will explore how our faith should inform their response to our learning, as well as discern action steps for working toward racial equity in our own communities.
This program will be facilitated by Claire Cox-Woodlief, Founder and CEO of CCW Transformation Ministries and Reggie Edwards. To learn more about Claire and Reggie, visit: https://ccwtransformation.com/about/.
We will gather every other Wednesday afternoon from 2:00-4:00 pm beginning January 20, 2021, concluding on May 26, 2021.
Participants will need to purchase the following books that we will utilize during our time together:
“White Fragility” by Robin DiAngelo
“I’m Still Here” by Austin Channing Brown
“40 Days of Prayer” by Cheri Mills
