"Take the first step in faith. You don't have to see the whole staircase. Just take the first step" ---Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

How do specific religious and spiritual communities challenge unethical behavior and summon us to a loving concern for the welfare of all? What are our White religious and spiritual communities doing to recognize their privilege? How do religious and spiritual communities avoid participating in racism, heterosexism, disregard for the wellbeing of the earth, and habits/systems of division among themselves? Join us for a panel presentation of brief introductory words offering diverse perspectives on how people put spiritual beliefs into action against oppression. An open dialogue will follow.
