The RACE problem? We're not finished! Over 300 of you created a learning agenda at Middle Church earlier this year, bringing wisdom and a thirst for love and justice that was awe-inspiring.The intervening months have been filled with so much violence and an escalation of hate-filled discourse. Our nation continues to be in a crisis, a state of dis-ease.
Let's come together. To strategize. To build on our foundation. To dismantle racism. Our 2017 conference Revolutionary Love: Disruptive Ethics to Dismantle Racism will be held at Middle Church April 28-30, 2017.
We've invited some of the best thought leaders and practitioners in our nation. Confirmed speakers include:
- Best-selling author, Brian McLaren, whose new book The Great Spiritual Migration was recently featured in Nicholas Kristof's column in The New York Times.
- Civil rights lawyer, media commentator, Sikh activist, and interfaith leader Valarie Kaur, who centers her work on storytelling for social change.
- Back by popular demand, The Rev. Dr. Miguel De La Torre, author of Liberating Sexuality: Justice Between the Sheets and The U.S. Immigration Crisis: Toward an Ethics of Place.
And a note from Jacqui Lewis: "I will also keynote this year, sharing what I've learned from a six-city Together Tour this fall with Glennon Doyle Menton, Sean Corne, and Valarie Kaur. I'll be bringing stories from tribes of dreamers, visionaries, and truth-tellers like you, standing with Love in this historic time of our nation."
