Being an Ally for Social Justice:
Multiracial Democracy & Economic Justice for All

 How can we be courageous in these times for racial justice?

With racist hate, fear and violence on the rise, this is an interactive workshop that uses storytelling, lessons and insights from social justice efforts historically and today, to help us be more effective in our work to dismantle white supremacy and build beloved community in our congregations and in our work for multiracial democracy and economic justice for all in our communities and country.
