LISTEN FOR A CHANGE: Sacred Conversations For Racial Justice
In today’s society, many systems of discrimination thrive because they remain invisible to those benefitting from them. As children of God, we are called to wake up, and to listen up. LISTEN FOR A CHANGE presents conversation as a learning opportunity: a chance to engage in deep listening and truth telling and, as a result, develop the skills to create change within a troubled system. By having these difficult conversations, we can build the underlying skills and willingness to address the racial tensions of our time.
LISTEN FOR A CHANGE is a conference organized by Trinity Institute in New York and will feature such prominent, powerful voices as Michele Norris, Nicholas Kristof, Anna Deavere Smith, and Presiding Bishop Michael Curry.
