Merciful Conversations on Race: Let’s Talk about White Privilege
Wednesday evenings, April 11, 18, 25, and May 2, 9; 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., Mt. Vernon Meeting House
Said by one participant to be “very helpful, thoughtful, and safe/easy/non-threatening,” Merciful Conversations on Race is sponsored by the Foster Churches Association with the RI State Council of Churches – a five Wednesday evening series, April 11, 18, 25, and May 2 and 9, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Participants are expected to attend all five sessions and to complete reading assignments and reflection exercises between sessions. This is an opportunity to reflect on your life through the lens of race, to understand systemic racism in our society, and to join with like-minded persons to build trust and heal divisions. The cost is $35 (partial and full scholarships are available). Registration is limited to 20 people, and you MUST register to participate. Please go to https://mcorfoster.eventbrite.com or speak to Rev. Betsy or Pastor Bob.
