Discipleship Forum Recording – Racial Justice Group – October 16, 2022

Description:

Maria Harwell and members of the Racial Justice Group delve into the subject of and lead meaningful discussion around the historical context of noose incidents across the United States and in our local communities, and the anti-racist work we are called to do in order to heal from and prevent further racially-motivated harassment and threats. Yes, it may make you uncomfortable but please join us for this historical perspective and the ramifications that continue today.
