      Faith-Based Anti-Racist Meeting

      Since August 2018, an interfaith team from People’s Institute for Survival and Beyond has been working with people from various faith communities. From the beginning, our goal has been to do something new about racism. After months of meetings, a public gathering took place February 28, 2019 at Marble Collegiate Church.  At that gathering, nearly 100 people from a variety of religious communities said “YES” to the idea of a new Faith-Based Anti-Racism Coalition. The coalition is hosting a gathering in Northern Westchester on November 13, 2019 at Katonah SPACE and we want you and any members of your religious community to join us.  Whether you’re someone whose been part of the organizing during the past year, or whether you are brand new and joining us for the first time, here is a short version of what you need to know about this Faith-based Anti-racist Coalition:    We’re an Interfaith Coalition inviting all religious communities, congregations and institutions to work together; We’re an Anti-Racism Coalition with a shared understanding of systemic racism and a shared commitment to organizing to end racism; Our Focus is Inward. We're committed to building unambiguous and uncompromising anti-racist religious communities! We cannot change the world if we do not begin with ourselves. Our Focus is Outward. We’re committed to effectively using collective power to address societal issues of racism – prison reform, immigration, education, health care, etc.  We are building for the long-term and we are looking forward to seeing you!
