Raising the BAR (Becoming Anti-Racist) Series
Thursday, May 20, via Zoom at 7:30 p.m.
Council of Churches of Greater Bridgeport
The Council of Churches of Greater Bridgeport (CCGB) have sponsored ongoing, monthly conversations and call to action on various segments exploring racism. Join us from 7:30 – 8:45 pm on the third Thursday of each month through May 2021.
The BAR (Becoming Anti-Racist) team has done an amazing job over the past 12 months. The team is made up of dedicated volunteers who have designed curricula which have been used in over 30 zoom sessions, attended by more than 600 people. They have facilitated series of meetings for CCGB members and friends, individual congregations, high school classes, and the Town of Stratford’s C.A.R.E. (Citizens Addressing Racial Equity). In every session people have learned, grown, and become acutely aware of the racism and inequities that are embedded in our history.
This coming summer CCGB will be offering a 5 part series, based on Jemar Tisby’s new book, “How to Fight Racism.” Building on last year’s summer series, participants will discover practical, concrete opportunities to put their faith and new understanding into action. The first session will be on Thursday, July 1st. Stay tuned for more information!
