Conversations about race and racism abound, as do book groups and social justice clubs. This group is specifically focused on what does it mean to be anti-racist within a racist society. Jesus' teachings are inherently antiracist, and yet somehow progressive Christians often struggle to articulate a clear faith foundation for their antiracist commitments.
West Seattle is brimming with progressives who want to engage in racial justice work, and yet many co-laborers of color lament the lack of analysis that is often brought to bear on this work. This book club aims to deepen the analysis of well-intentioned progressives, pushing us beyond being "not racist" and towards a deeper understanding of and commitment to being anti-racist.
Participation is open to all, whether a follower of Jesus or not. Anyone committed to seeing all people as equally worthy of dignity and respect is truly welcome.
