Engaging Compassion for Racial Justice

Racial JusticeMay 2017

 

“True compassion is more than flinging a coin to a beggar; it comes to see that an edifice which produces beggars needs restructuring.” -Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

 

Compassion is a state of being and it is also the practice of acting in the world for the greater good.  This five-week course focuses on building skills, expanding perspectives, developing vision and exploring spiritual practices that are critical in fully acknowledging, directly confronting, and actively engaging in the struggle against racism.  Drawing from spiritual leaders, scholars, and activists, the course aims to shed light on the nature of structural and individual racism while also cultivating within you compassionate actions you can take to effectively combat racism.  Learn how you can engage compassion on a local level and explore ways you can contribute in creating more racially just communities. This course will be highly interactive with small group dialogue, partner sharing, and experiential activities.
