Whiteness and the Catholic Church in the US
September 30, 2020 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm EDT
In response to the Black Lives Matter movement, Catholic communities are grappling with their own historical and current complicity in tolerating racist systems and perpetuating white privilege and power structures. This panel will explore the theological and pastoral responses available to Catholics in addressing and responding to the social sin of systemic anti-Black racism and white supremacy in the church and society. Free and open to the public.
Where Do We Go From Here? An Equity, Racial Justice, and Reconciliation Series
This event is part of a virtual webinar series which aims to address the most pressing and relevant race issues of our time that impact and threaten racial justice today. Through community dialogue and a Jesuit Catholic, San Francisco, and Bay Area lens, we engage critical issues to understand how we can reconcile ourselves from the legacy and harm of racism in Jesuit higher education. The series is an invitation to the extended USF community to engage in and commit to anti-Black racist work, thought, and action.
Sponsored by: the USF Jesuit Community, Trustee Emeritus Eva Monroe, Division of Student Life, Institute for Nonviolence and Social Justice, University Ministry, Joan and Ralph Lane Center for Catholic Social Thought and the Ignatian Tradition, the Leo T. McCarthy Center for Public Service and the Common Good, and Fromm Institute for Lifelong Learning, and the Office of Diversity Engagement and Community Outreach.
