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, November 17th @ 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.
Recent Network online meetings have been blessed by learning from teachers who shared with their experiences and wisdom. This month, it’s time to talk with each other. On Tuesday, November 17th, 6:30-7:45 pm, participants will have the opportunity for significant conversation in a specific focus area of your choice. Those areas include:
- Participate in our lead book reads
- Attend, research, or lead trainings
- Pursue ways to build relationships
- Partner with organizations or groups in my community and address local issues
- Learn about reparations
- Address concerns of Indigenous communities
- Work for systemic change through policy change
- Curate resources for the synod website
