Accelerating Justice Series: When Justice is Not Equal
Thursday, March 11, 2021 8:00 pm EST
Last year's nationwide protests erupted from a long, intertwined history of race and the criminal justice system that is rooted in slavery, segregation and racist violence. In partnership with AMP America.org, the Center for Common Ground continues the "Accelerating Justice" webinar series because of wide concern for communities of color that have suffered civic disenfranchisement, trauma, and lost economic opportunities. Join them as they delve into the community dimensions of criminal justice system impacts and how to take action. RSVP here.
#SayHerName: Womanist Theology, Activism, and Movement Making
Tuesday, March 16, 2021 7:00 pm EST
March 13 marks one year since 26-year-old Breonna Taylor was killed in Louisville, KY, and her story continues. Black women and girls face compounding assaults from police and violent attackers as young as 7 and as elder as 93. We are reminded that when terror strikes Black families it is often Black women who are left to deal with the scars. What shall womanist theology say to these things? During this women’s herstory month, tune in to this "Just Talk / Talk Just" series webinar from Union Presbyterian Seminary to hear the voices of womanist theologians engage #sayhername, activism, and movement making. Free, but registration required by March 16 @ 5 PM ET.
