SFA: Ally or Accomplice: Multiple Pathways to Racial Justice

Original Program Date: July 16, 2020

We all need to make a choice…are we going to be part of the solution, or are we going to be part of the problem?  On the journey to racial justice, it is important to recognize that each of us has a role to play – and even inaction has major consequences.  There is not one right approach, though. In fact, it is going to take a multi-pronged strategy for sustainable change.  What action will you take?

This session will define the terms ally and accomplice, and explore a variety of ways that each of us can make positive changes towards understanding, community building, and justice. Join facilitators Rachel Luce-Hitt and Anjella Warnshuis in a discussion on being part of the solution.
