Faith & Racial Equity: Exploring Power & Privilege

Do you want to address racism, but don’t know where to begin?

JustFaith Ministries

Faith & Racial Equity: Exploring Power & Privilege is an 8-session program from JustFaith Ministries that awakens groups to the economic systems, public policies, cultural norms, and hidden biases that empower some and oppress others.

The first half of the program lays the groundwork for understanding and identifying racial privilege. Sessions 5-8 take a deeper dive into specific issues related to power and privilege, including affirmative action, the school-to-prison pipeline, disparities within the criminal justice system, and biases in media representation. As with all JustFaith Ministries’ programs, participants will explore how their faith should inform their response to their learning, as well as discern action steps for working toward racial equity in their own communities.
