Conversation on Race and the Environmental Movement

Chicago cultural centerTo start the new year off provocatively, and with depth of meaning, Faith in Place is hosting a conversation on Race and the Environmental Movement on Thursday, January 24, from 6:30-8:30pm at the Chicago Cultural Center (78 E Washington Street, Millenium Park Room, 5th Floor). The congregations that participate with Faith in Place contain every kind of people - African-American, Caucasian, Latino, Asian, all of the above. They're from every economic class and every life experience too. But for some reason here in the United States the mainstream environmental movement remains pretty heavily white and middle-class. Have you ever wondered why that is, and wished that you could talk about it with people who are different from you? We have too. So we decided we'd open up an opportunity. The evening will open with brief reflections by Faith in Place staff and others who hail from all over the demographic map. Then we'll open up for a real conversation - honest questions, candid answers. The context will be loving and full credit for your true good intentions will be given. Join us!
