Race, Faith, and Justice will take place at Warner Pacific College 2219 SE 68th Ave, Portland, OR 97215in McGuire Auditorium on Monday, June 29th at 7pm to 9pm. Featuring keynote speaker Rev. Sekou (activist, public theologian, author from Ferguson) and a panel discussion from: - Rev. Sekou (Fellowship of Reconciliation and Scholar in Residence at the Martin Luther King Papers Project at Stanford University - Dr. Daymond Glenn (Warner Pacific College) - JoAnn Hardesty (Portland NAACP) - Eric Knox (Imago Dei Community) This free event, held at Warner Pacific College, will bring Rev. Osagyefo Sekou to speak about his experiences in Ferguson and Baltimore. Rev. Sekou was arrested multiple times, supported the activists on the front lines of protest and speaks about the new identity of protestors. He sees a new class of young people rising up to change systems and challenges us to follow these new leaders. Rev. Sekou will challenge our assumptions about race, about who our leaders are, and how we engage these issues. After Rev. Sekou inspires and challenges our ideas on Ferguson and the role of people of faith , our panel (including Rev. Sekou) will provide practical and Portland specific feedback. Exploring ideas such as: - The role of people of faith in the Black Lives Matter movement - How people of faith have been a support and how they have failed - How people of faith can participate in issues/projects in Portland - How young people can connect their faith and civic connection - The place of people of color in American Christianity - and dialogue on the tension and realities of these issues. Ultimately, this event is a time for folks to listen and educate themselves, to wrestle with topics, and to connect with people engaged in the work of justice. Local organizations, such as the YWCA of Greater Portland, Impact NW, The Albina Ministerial Alliance, Ecumenical Ministries of Oregon, City Serve Portland, and others will promote their programs and attendees will have a chance to ask questions and connect further.
