Racism is a multifaceted, deep-seated problem. Dismantling it can feel insurmountable. During the month of February, you’re invited into a pilot program that addresses racism from a new angle: multiracial solidarity. Multiracial solidarity refutes the zero-sum idea of racial equity—that in order for some groups to do better, other groups must suffer—and instead argues that when we tackle problems we all face using collective solutions, every one of us stands to prosper.
Based on Heather McGhee’s 2020 book The Sum of Us, this four-part multiracial solidarity curriculum invites us to consider the stakes of racism for all of us, Black, brown, or white, and then, to make a plan to build multiracial power and affect real change. Three congregations are piloting this curriculum this winter-spring, and we look forward to receiving your feedback. For any questions or more information, please contact Rev. Christian.
