Living Room Conversations: Race and Ethnicity Series

In the present condition of global society, where injustices abound and growing numbers of people are deprived of basic human rights and considered expendable, the principle of the common good immediately becomes, logically and inevitably, a summons to solidarity and a preferential option for the poorest of our brothers and sisters. – Laudato Si’ 158

"My friends, we cannot tolerate or turn a blind eye to racism and exclusion in any form and yet claim to defend the sacredness of every human life. " Pope Francis on the death of George Floyd. 6.3.2020

Catholic social teaching calls us all to work for the common good, help build a just society, uphold the dignity of human life and lift up our poor and vulnerable brothers and sisters.

About This Series

In this series of three in-depth conversations, participants explore the complexities of the concepts of Race, Ethnicity, and their impacts on people from all walks of life. The expressed American ideal is the creation of a society that is fair and has opportunity for all, regardless of individual or group identity. Even as we work to build a nation that reflects those ideals, there are challenges to living into its fullest expression. Never have these challenges been more evident. This conversation series is an opportunity to explore our varied experiences of race and ethnicity in the American context. Where are we and what do we aspire to for ourselves and our communities?

Now, more than ever we are called to address the inequities that our society has created. We begin through civil conversation, in order to dig deeper into our own beliefs and understandings and then to listen with an open heart to others.

More about Living Room Conversations

The Justice Matters Ministry is excited to offer this opportunity to have stimulating conversations. Living Room Conversations are a conversational bridge across issues that may divide and separate us. They provide an easy structure for engaging in congenial yet meaningful conversation. These conversations increase understanding, reveal common ground, and can help us build community during these times of isolation. This is an opportunity to become acquainted with others within our Most Precious Blood community. In doing so, it allows us to build on one of the pillars of MPB  — a strong sense of caring for, and being attentive to the needs of one another.

Conversations will be held on ZOOM. Each conversation is 90 minutes. You will receive additional information a few days before the conversation.

For more information on Living Room Conversations- go to their website https://www.livingroomconversations.org.

To maximize this experience it is highly recommended that one attend all 3 sessions. Each conversation builds upon the other. The third session is dependent on attending at least one of the previous two sessions. Sign up for only 1 of each topic, i.e. 1 on Race, 1 on Ethhnicity and 1 on Race and Ethhnicity.
