Finding yourself in the story of race….

Come join the Saint Paul Area Synod in welcoming Debby Irving, author of Waking Up White. Irving will being speaking and leading us in an interactive workshop. This time will be most effective if congregations plan on bringing a group ready to collaborate further with church conferences and neighboring communities. This event is open to rostered and lay leaders as well as community members.

We will focus our time on, Leveling the Playing Field: Interrupting Patterns of Power and Privilege; this is an interactive workshop involving mapping power, patterns, and interventions.

Suggested cost of the event is $10 per person, to be collected at the door. We do not want cost to prohibit anybody from attending this learning opportunity – all are welcome. Debby Irving will have books available and there will be an opportunity to meet her after the workshop time.

If your congregation or organization has yet to read Waking Up White, it is recommended to read before attending. A study guide for the book is available on the Eventbrite page and the SPAS- Advocates for Racial Equity (ARE) webpage: https://www.spas-elca.org/resources/for-congregations/anti-racism-multiculturalism/
