The SW MN Synod Racial Justice Network is a combination of conversations and work.
Besides growing through education and offering statements and prayers,
we believe we are also called to act and respond to injustices.
The next meeting will be Tuesday, September 15 @ 6:30 p.m.If you would like to be part of this work, but haven’t signed up to receive communications, please click here. We also ask you to fill out a short questionnaire to indicate your interest within the network. Click here to fill out the online questionnaire before the next meeting.
We are honored to welcome to this gathering Shari Seifert of Calvary Lutheran Church, Mpls., along with Calvary Race Equity Committee member Scott Endo. Together with MN Synod pastor, Rev. Dr. Yolanda Densen-Byers, Shari’s experiences of engaging in anti-racism work in her own congregation were featured in the January edition of Living Lutheran, “Unpacking White Privilege – The Important Work of Making the Church Less Harmful.” We will hear from Shari and Scott, have an opportunity for Q. & A., and then have time for conversation rooms. You can read about her experiences by clicking here.
