Forum: Confronting Racism--Dialogue
Sunday, February 24, 2019, 10:15 AM - 11:05 AM
This forum concludes our four-part series on confronting racism. The Rev'd Dr. Carol Flett will introduce us to the racism and bias dialogues she leads for adults from all faith traditions and ethnic backgrounds. These sessions include exercises that raise awareness of the many forms of personal and systemic biases and prejudices that affect one's access to housing, education, jobs, relationships and other opportunities. Participants share their experiences of bias in a small group. In the Sunday Forum, participants will experience two of these exercises: the small group sharing exercise and a large group exercise. A volunteer participant in each small group will be asked to be the time-keeper of their group.
Carol retired as associate rector of St. Alban's in 2012. She continues to serve as the diocesan Inter-religious Officer. She is an active volunteer with Montgomery County's Faith Community Advisory Council, serving as Co-Chair of the Faith Leaders Response Team, which brings together faith leaders from all faith traditions to respond as a team to any act of hate, violence, or discrimination toward a faith community. Carol's D.Min. project('2000) focused on assisting in the development of the Episcopal Church's Anti-racism Curriculum.
