Upcoming Webinars: Inventory of Racial Justice and Truth-Telling Ministries
For the second year, The Episcopal Church has gathered data from more than 70 dioceses – as well as more than 140 congregations and institutions – detailing regional and local ministries of racial justice, reconciliation and healing, this time with an emphasis on ministries of truth-telling about our churches and race.
A series of three webinars will introduce the full array of ministries in this year’s inventory, an online resource that goes live following the first webinar. Sessions will also feature wisdom from leaders who are dedicated to racial truth-telling, reckoning with history, faithfully approaching reparations, and healing the wounds of racism. The inventory and webinars are a project of the Church’s Racial Reconciliation and Justice Team with partners at Justice and Sustainability Associates.
