This program awakens us to the economic systems, public policies, cultural norms, and hidden biases that empower some and oppress others.

Sessions take a deep dive into specific issues related to power and privilege, including affirmative action, the school-to-prison pipeline, the criminal justice system, and powerful biases in media representation. Participants will explore how their faith may open new paths to learning and help with discernment of action steps for working toward racial equity in their own communities.

The module is designed for participants who are willing to wrestle with hard questions and take an honest look at their own attitudes, assumptions, and choices. Through spiritual grounding and communitybuilding, participants will find support and belonging throughout their journey to personal transformation and social action. The nature, place, and time of an immersion experience will be decided by the group.
