Speakers

Let's Get Uncomfortable - Series of 3

LET'S GET UNCOMFORTABLE - SERIES OF 3

Racism is everybody’s problem. For too long, the responsibility to understand and dismantle racism has fallen on communities of color. That ends now. White people need to do more of their own learning, growing, and dismantling. We want to help, so we created a 3-part series of conversations that bring together communities to talk about racism, being anti-racist, and what we can do right now, today to make the future better.

Gathering

The Minnesota Council of Churches Healing Minnesota Stories provide group Sacred Sites Tour to Explore Indigenous Experience in Minnesota. These tours are designed to "create understanding and healing between Native American and non-Native people, particularly those in various faith communities".

Tours are led by Rev. Jim Bear Jacobs (Mohican) and Bob Klanderud (Dakota). The tours offer an opportunity to learn about Minnesota history from a Native perspective through story-telling and experiencing the sites in silence / meditation / reflection.
