We are “LIVE AT THE CORNERS!”
with our Racial Justice Awareness Series
In response to the passion of our DCCCP youth and the enthusiastic response generated from the summer Racial Justice Awareness event at our church, our DCCCP Youth Group has created “Live at the Corners!” The Youth Group is planning five live-streamed, thirty-minute presentations and panel talks relating to Racial and Social Justice. Please mark your calendars for these themed events, all held from 6:00-6:30 each Tuesday for five consecutive weeks:
October 13: Youth Group Conversations: Impressions, experiences, and awareness about Racial Justice led by two teen moderators and discussed by a Youth Group teen panel. Audience members submit online questions and comments relating to Race during the session. These audience questions and comments will be addressed in the final session.
October 20: History of Oppression: We will address many types of oppressions throughout history among persons of color in America and how its effects linger on today in spite of the many accomplishments and contributions of Black Americans and other marginalized groups.
October 27: What the Bible Tells Us: We will investigate Racial Relations as relayed in the Bible and explore how people of faith respond to racial injustices. Tentative speakers: Minister and congregation members of Westerly Baptist Church.
November 10: URI Professors address Race: Pro-active attitudes, behaviors, language, role-modeling, programs, and services that promote equity and social justice in our schools and communities. Exploration of ways in which we can all take pro-active roles in ensuring equality.
November 17: Audience Input Session on Race: This final, culminating session responds to audience comments and questions relating to Race that were submitted at Session One. We explore future directions and avenues for combatting racism in America.
We look forward to the role our youth will play as we seek to grow in our awareness of racial justice and explore ways in which we can make a positive impact.
