Event description

Description

“I am here and so are you. And we matter. We can change things.” - Ella Baker


Are you looking for ways to more effectively speak as a spiritually or religiously-rooted person doing justice work?

Are you trying to find ways to stay in the resistance without burning out?

As we mark the first anniversary of the Inauguration and a year of resistance and resilience, it is important that we take time to re-ground ourselves spiritually and religiously so that we might be both strategic and build resilience for the long haul.

Moral courage is a gift of the spirit that can be awakened within every human being as a response to any situation, system, or structure that would undercut the full flourishing of all.

Join us for exercises, rituals, activities, and conversations to explore what moral courage means to you.

You will look at your personal story, connect with the issues and communities that move you, and think differently about the personal, spiritual, and cultural resources you have to offer in healing the world.


This event is free and open to all, register now!

Light dinner served.
