In partnership with the Adele Social Justice Project, we have offered the Seeing White podcast series and dialogue for the Marianist Family to engage in more intentional, internal conversations and provide more space for conversion of hearts. It is helpful for us as as family to hold the mirror up to our own shortcomings and opportunities for growth and intentional invitation to address the evil of racism that still exists in our communities.
This program was first run in September 2020 and brought together 15 individuals weekly. The participants listened to a racial equity podcast and then fostered discussion on the issues and insights to move forward. We are hoping to host this program again at the beginning of 2021 so check back here and on MSJC's social media for details!
The Racial Justice Issue Team is exploring ways our Marianist institutions are and/or could be living out the Church's mission of racial justice. Similar to how some Marianist schools have successfully addressed environmental sustainability efforts, we feel racial justice could become an integral part of how we talk about and do things at an institutional level.
