Faith and Justice

Fall Book Conversation Series beginning on October 6th from 6:30 – 8:00pm via Zoom

Zoom ID: 541-870-2251

Our call is clear: God loves and champions the cause of the oppressed, and we’re meant to image God by doing the same.

Join us for a Fall Conversation series continuing to explore themes of racial justice and the lack of it. We’ll uncover more deeply what we mean when we use the phrase “systemic racism” both in our political system and inside the church and explore what it means to work for the deep justice that marks the coming of God’s kingdom.

The Color of Law

Book Discussion on October 6th from 6:30 – 8:00pm

Zoom ID: 541-870-2251

The phrase “systemic racism” gets used a lot now. But what lies at the heart of it? Join us as we discuss Richard Rothstein’s The Color of Law, which explores one key cog where racism has influenced our nation’s systems: housing.

Homeownership not only builds wealth among lower and middle-class families, it also determines the quality of healthcare, schooling, and a handful of other key factors. The Color of Law examines the ways that housing discrimination–often backed by federal policy–systematically dispossessed African American communities through the practice of red-lining.

We invite you to purchase a copy wherever you buy your books and come with your thoughts and questions for our virtual conversation on October 6th.
