Church and Society takes its signature Seminar Program virtual in a series of webinars on COVID-19 and social justice issues. The weekly series, called Pre-existing Disparities Revealed, explores how the pandemic intersects with topics such as systemic racism, the carcel system, and access to food.
"COVID-19 revealed societal injustices that already existed. This pandemic has magnified familiar societal, political, and economic disparities—now with the added urgency of a public health crisis," said Aimee Hong, Senior Executive Director of Education and Engagement.
"We will hear from experts and learn how to take action for a long-lasting change towards a more just post-COVID-19 world," says Hong.
Webinars will occur every Thursday, starting May 21 at 2 PM ET. Topics include:
· May 21: Systemic Racism and Discrimination during COVID-19
· May 28: Confined and Vulnerable: Detained and Incarcerated during COVID-19
· June 4: From the Ground to the Table: Food Insecurity during COVID-19
· June 11: A Just and Peaceable Global Relief from COVID-19
· June 18: Imagining a Just Economy post COVID-19
All webinars are free and open to all. Click the links above to register for individual sessions.
"It may be tempting to return to life pre-COVID-19, the opportunity exists for people of faith to use this unprecedented moment to prophetically redress these historical and persisting wrongs," said Hong. "Now is an opportunity to commit to Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven."
All webinars in the series will be archived and available on Church and Society's YouTube channel.
