Tackling racism in Europe: historical, theological and practical truths. How does faith inform understanding and response?
One year on from the murder of George Floyd, what is the response of people of faith to racial injustice? What has been the role of the churches in the development of ideologies and narratives around race, ethnicity, and whiteness? How can faith help in the fight against racial injustice today?
We are delighted to welcome:
• Selina Stone, Tutor and Lecturer in Political Theology, St Mellitus College, London
• Prof. Dr. Volker Küster, Professor of Comparative Religion and Missiology, Johannes Gutenberg University, Mainz
• Rev. Lusa Nsenga-Ngoy, BAME (Black and Minority Ethnic) Mission and Ministry Enabler, Diocese of Leicester
Moderator: Fabienne Alcaraz, EU official, volunteer at the Chapel for Europe, member of the network of EU prayer groups.
This interactive online conference will encourage and equip people of faith and people working in the EU institutions, government representations, and the NGO sector. You are invited to come and deepen your understanding of the causes of racism, and the factors that can foster real and meaningful change.
