On Wednesday, Jan. 25, 6-7 p.m., come learn about Episcopal City Misson’s new statewide campaign on shrinking the racial wealth gap in Massachusetts, and find out ways to get involved in the three areas of work: reparations; solidarity economy and investing; and state-level policy change.
This spring, ECM will be hosting a 3-6 month program for Episcopal groups and individuals with a focus on action toward reparations and the wealth gap. This upcoming program will be a particularly good fit for individuals and groups that have already done some racial justice education, such as the Sacred Ground series or the Reparations Toolkit offered by the Diocese of Massachusetts, and who are looking for what action steps they can take next.
The program will be a spiritually grounded space for personal transformation, relationship building, both joy and reckoning and, most of all, concrete and bold action in the world. Plans include space for caucus (break-out) groups by race and possibly class identity, to recognize that, while we all have ways we can contribute, the responsibility of closing the racial wealth gap most directly falls into the hands of white communities who have benefited from unfair advantages throughout this nation’s history.
Register here for the link to join on Zoom for the Jan. 25 information session. Those who can’t make it but would like the reccording should go ahead and register.
Questions may be directed to the Rev. Edwin Johnson, Director Of Organizing, Episcopal City Mission (firstname.lastname@example.org).
