Racial Justice Ministry Virtual Forum
Now What – As to Racial Justice, What Did We Win/Lose & What is Our Call to Action?
We will address the following questions:
1) What is our role and messaging in engaging “shy-Trump voters” and finding common ground on furthering racial justice work going forward? How do we do this while also centering the voices of BIPOC?
2) Of President Elect Biden’s racial justice policy proposals, which should we get behind and how do we hold the new administration accountable to these items? If we could only focus on a handful next year which should they be?
In preparation we have researched several timely news items/blogs about these questions. We will spend a few minutes at the beginning highlighting the general findings below.
