Connecting our Conversations: What is Antiracism and What Does It Require Of Us?
In this "pivot moment" in the life of the church in the United States, where what it means to be The Church and to live out a Christian faith is constantly being questioned, our Presbytery is leaning in to our ongoing antiracism and equity work of discernment - how are we currently structured? How has our church been coopted into systems of injustice and sin? If we are by nature a cooperative group, how can we in our work together speak the same language of antiracism?
In this first episode of Season Three, PSNE's General Presbyter, the Rev. Shannan Vance-Ocampo talks with Jessica Vazquez-Torres and Ryan Lents of Crossroads Antiracism Organizing and Training and with Kirk Louis, former chair of the PSNE Anti-Racism and Equity Committee, about our upcoming Presbytery-wide antiracism training series: What is Antiracism and What Does It Require of Us?
