Housing and Policing Challenges
In this first in a series of courses focused on “A Path Forward,” we’ll focus on the housing and policing challenges for Black Louisvillians, and we’ll clarify the roles of white people as allies in the cause of justice. Through readings, recordings, and guest speakers, we’ll better understand our current situation and how we got to where we are. Finally, we’ll identify actions that we can take as individuals and as the Earth & Spirit Community, to support the implementation of “A Path Forward” and to reverse systems of racial oppression so our community can begin to heal.
Tuesday mornings 10:00 – 11:30 am
September 7, 14, 21, 28, October 5, 12
In-person and Zoom options are available.
