Racial Healing – offered and presented by St. Stephen’s Lutheran Church EDH
Healing Circles – Racial Healing Circles have been developing in the United States for over a decade. Participants in the circles “envision a more connected and truthful world that addresses the unresolved and persistent effects of the historic institution of slavery.” St. Stephen’s Lutheran Church hosts two circles a month, the first and third Wednesdays at 6pm. Contact the church office at (916) 933-1441 to receive the Zoom invitation. This is an interfaith, intergenerational, multicultural group.
Book Study: The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness by Michelle Alexander. St. Stephen’s hosts a book study on “The New Jim Crow,” the second Thursday of the month at 4:30pm. Alexander challenges the notion that the election of President Barack Obama ushered in a “new era of colorblindness.” Rather, “we have not ended racial caste in America; we have merely redesigned it.” Contact the church office at (916) 933-1441 to receive the Zoom invitation. This is an interfaith, intergenerational, multicultural group.
