What’s happening on campus?
With the trial of Derek Chauvin beginning on March 8th, our nation – and especially the Twin Cities – will again be confronted with the trauma of racism, police brutality, and white supremacy in America. Our communities will face the images of George Floyd’s death yet again, long once more for justice, and experience emotions ranging from rage to hope. In anticipation of this moment, we gather to address important questions such as: How can communities of color respond in the midst of the images and issues that will be circulated during the trial? What role should clergy and community leaders play in providing care and critical consciousness raising in this moment? How can public conversations among faith leaders of all races disrupt systems of oppression and empower us to break these cycles of violence? Event details and registration here.
