From Racism to Beloved Community:
Anti-Racism Resources

As pastoral leaders, the call to resist evil in all its manifestations can be challenging and wearying to our souls. The Center for Faith and Imagination is here to help. We are committed to resisting racism and white supremacy by providing faith leaders with resources for individual and communal accountability, anti-racist dialogue and actions, and spiritual self-care.

The Tie That Binds: Toward a Vision of Understanding and Dismantling Racism and Sexism

The Center for Faith and Imagination is proud to announce the third webinar in our four webinar series, co-hosted with Equity for Women in the Church. Featured speaker Rev. Dr. Irie Lynne Session says, “Racism and sexism come from the same ideological root – subordination of those deemed inferior, having less human value, and a desire to dominate and use them. The North American Church must become a community where human domination is dismantled and in its place the flourishing of all people persists.”
