The Leading Edge 2015: Race, Reconciliation, and Courage—Creating the World We Want

In troubling times like these, moral courage demands that leaders—preachers and teachers; activists and artists; entertainers and entrepreneurs—undertake and encourage courageous conversations about race. Race and the school to prison pipeline. Race and police reform. Race and economic equality. Race and voting rights. Race and immigration. Race and mass incarceration. If we are to heal our nation, we will need to have conversations that lead to reconciliation and a peaceful revolution that creates the world we want.
The questions before us are compelling.
- How do we articulate a practical theology that leads to an antiracist society?
- How do we address both personal and systemic racism, and how do we heal from its scars?
- What tactics do we need to create and sustain an interracial, interdisciplinary, interreligious movement for shalom?
The Middle Project invites you to its ninth annual conference, The Leading Edge: Race, Reconciliation, and Courage—Creating the World We Want. Join a community of social architects committed to heal our nation of racism and to create a more just society.

The Middle Project
The Middle Project is a 501(c) 3 not for profit launched by Middle Church. It is an institute that combines education, training and social activism, as we prepare ethical leaders for a just society. The Middle Project unites progressive leaders who are ready for a revolutionary and prophetic way of using power, information, and resources to act locally and think globally to heal the human family.
The Middle Project takes its strength and approach from the progressive faith traditions that have played a major role in America’s greatest democratic achievements: the abolition of slavery, civil rights, universal suffrage, and the anti-war movement.
The Middle Project sponsors conferences, conducts research, creates resources, offers consulting services and conducts leadership laboratories for young adults and teens, as it works to heal the world.
