Racial Injustice: From Complicity to Commitment
October 2-4, 2020
Cosponsored by First Presbyterian Church of Berkeley and New College Berkeley
Register now for GCC 2020: a weekend virtual conference of listening to voices of Christians of color who are on the front lines of combating racial injustice. Our six speakers are well known, dedicated faith leaders who are involved in issues of racial justice and the church. Wonderfully, Jemar Tisby, author of The Color of Compromise: The Truth about the American Church’s Complicity in Racism (the book that we have been reading in book groups this summer) will be one of our speakers on Friday evening. We will also hear from Michael McBride, Alexia Salvatierra, Raymond Chang, Dominique DuBois Guilliard, and Kamal Hassan. Conversations are facilitated by the Mark Labberton and Charlene Han Powell.
Speakers will speak to those of us in predominantly white churches with loving candor and honesty about the church’s complicity in racial injustice. We hope they will help us move from that complicity to overcome racial injustice in our own hearts and minds, so we may be able to commit, with energy and compassion, to the collective work of change in the church and in our communities.
