Intersectional Reads is a monthly book group that will focus on broadening our collective understanding of the human experience, intersectionality, and faith. By choosing authors and topics that challenge us intellectually, experientially and contextually, we will build a better foundation as we address discrimination, privilege and institutional injustice. We will discuss questions such as:
- How has this human experience challenged or affirmed?
- How does context interact with faith?
- What are some concrete next steps?
We meet by ZOOM video-conference. Register here: https://us02web.zoom.us/meeting/register/tZ0lfuqhrD8vHN3yJ1i53gFtgUckPqZInqko
