Root and Branch: Racial Equity and Healing in One Southern Parish
April 27, 2021 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm
A virtual event hosted by The CEEP Network.
What might we learn together from taking a deeper dive into the life of a progressive yet traditional southern parish as they reflect on a year of racial equity and healing work? All the panelists are lay leaders and clergy at All Saints’ Episcopal Church, Atlanta. Together they will explore the roots and branches of their work toward racial equity and healing, how the killing of George Floyd and the protests that followed propelled the parish deeper into that work and how much they are learning about what they do not know about the city around them.
All are welcome to attend, especially lay and clergy leaders who might see this one parish’s work as a reflection of their own and offer insights to deepen and widen the church’s mission. The conversation will move from the personal and relational to the institutional and cultural levels of race, equity and healing.
