The ACTION Project is a three-year program designed to reflect the critical intersections of learning, accountability, and praxis that are necessary for racial justice. Utilizing non-traditional frameworks, participants learn from the authority, wisdom, and experiences of BIPOC educators.
These themes are the focus of this three-year program, with some of the emphases described below.
Year A HISTORY:
We ask the question “How did we get here?” through experiential learning facilitated by BIPOC educators.
Year B CURRENT CLIMATE:
We explore the current climate, including the disparities in community, and offer trainings in building racial consciousness and community organizing.
Year C SOLIDARITY:
We provide tailored consultation for the development of your congregation’s reparations ministry in their local community.
Each year of the ACTION project includes meetings, support, and action steps:
