Tell Me the Truth About Racism: Intergenerational Discussion

April 11 @ 4:00 pm - 8:00 pm

invitation to attend a workshop on racism.

Please join us for a training that will help equip individuals to talk about racism using storytelling through a lens of faith.  Trainers, Jen Holt Enriquez and Will Bovel, will hold a workshop at Saint Luke on Thursday April 11, 2024 from 4 – 8 pm. Jen and Will built the foundation of this work in Lent 2021 to teach to children at their churches in the Episcopal Diocese of Chicago.   Their approach defines racism as “The lie in our world that some people are better than others based on the color of their skin.” It is only because of the Truth we know from God, that all people are equally children of God, that we can clearly see how racism tells us a lie about who we are. Racism distorts us all – Black, white, and brown – away from who God made us to be.

Attendance cost is $15 and can be paid at the door.  Scholarships are available.  Dinner will be provided.  For more information, visit www.tellmethetruthaboutracism.org where you can read more about the approach and watch videos of stories being told to children.
