Reparations: Concrete Steps Your Congregation Can Take
Rev. Dr. Rebecca Voelkel, Rev. Jim Bear Jacobs (Mohican), and Rev. Ashley Harness
What can we do to address our nation's, our denomination's and our families' histories of colonization? Conversations about reparations are happening in local communities, in the halls of Congress and in individual homes. This workshop will explore models that the Minnesota Council of of Churches and MARCH (Multifaith Anti-Racism, Change and Healing) are using with local Christian, Jewish and Unitarian Universalist congregations. Included will be work on Truthtelling, Genuine Relationships of Solidarity, Spiritual Practices and Resource Redistribution as well as embodiment practices to support all of these.
