Church of the Brethren Standing with People of Color - Organizing Meeting 

The Church of the Brethren Annual Conference called for a three-year denominational process to move toward more vibrant and effective solidarity with communities of color. You are invited to join the efforts of the Standing With People of Color Study/Action process by attending an online meeting on November 6 or 18 to get connected and find role to play in our efforts.  

The initial planning committee is reaching out across the denomination seeking volunteers and helpers to bring this process to life. We need many kinds of assistance - networkers, facilitators, interviewers, writers, and people to pray. 

On Monday, November 6 at 7:30 pm Eastern (6:30 Central/5:30 Mountain/4:30 Pacific), we will meet via Zoom in a live session to help plug people into roles, creating a web of leaders at local, district and denominational levels. 

Some of you have already let us know about roles you are interested in. We are still looking for people to fill roles such as

 

CONNECTION

  • Help reach out to involve more people in this process
  • Help organize the network of CoB racial justice advocates
  • Children & youth engagement

EDUCATION

  • Lead or support discussions using 7 prompts in your congregation, district or family
  • Team up to lead educational events in my congregation or district - location-based or online
  • Curate Biblical educational resources
  • Develop annotated bibliography to help meet different needs

 

ACTION

  • Let us know that you are already involved in taking action for racial justice
  • Take steps to get your congregation or district involved
  • Take steps to get involved in racial justice concerns in your local community
  • Interview people who are already taking action and write up their stories

 

COORDINATION
