|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 7:00 pm on Wednesday, repeating until Wed, July 15, 2020

A Program of Roots & Branches: Programs For Spiritual Growth In Collaboration with the Reparations Committee of the Episcopal Diocese of New York*

Co-Sponsored by Rural & Migrant Ministry Inc.

Since the murder of George Floy, Breonna Taylor, and Ahmaud Arbery, protests have sprung up across the country demanding real change. Is this the time for that change? Is this the moment that will lead to a lasting difference? It CAN be. Let’s not let it slip by.

Embedded in the institution of slavery are principles that are the foundation of successive oppressive institutions in American culture today. Join us in this five-part webinar series to explore, understand, and strategize ways of transforming those corrupt principles intended to benefit a few, into life-affirming policies for the good of all.

Knee on Neck: Slavery’s Ghost uses lectures, videos, and other supportive resource materials to help prepare participants generate plans and strategies for parishes, the diocese, and the wider church embody and bear witness to policies and actions that affirm, support, and celebrate all.

Created by the Rev. Masud Ibn Syedullah TSSF, Founder and Director of Roots & Branches, and assisted by the Rev. Chuck Kramer, Rector of St James, Hyde Park & Member of the Reparations Committee.

First Meeting: Juneteenth  June 19th  7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.; Subsequent Meetings:  Wednesdays  June 24, July 1, 8, and 15,    7 p.m. – 8:30 p.m.
