RECOGNIZING AND COMBATING WHITE CHRISTIAN NATIONALISM
7PM | FREE | at Wilson College's Harry R. Brooks Complex for Science, Mathematics, and Technology (#22 on the campus map)
White Christian Nationalism (WCN) is a belief system that is a growing threat to our democracy, a danger to people of color, and a heresy that is causing grave damage to the church in the United States. This workshop will define WCN, explore its history, help us recognize it in church and culture, and offer ways to counter its influence.
The event is free to attend. No registration required. This educational workshop is being presented in response to Marjorie Taylor Greene's local appearance at the Lincoln Day Dinner on this same date.
MONTHLY: FIRST MONDAY
12PM - 1:15PM
Open to anyone wishing to learn more and get involved! Join us for a Zoom meeting to continue the work of racial justice. To request Zoom meeting information, please sign up for our email list.
