Anti-Racism & Interfaith Cooperation
ZOOM LINK
Allison Pelyhes & Kiah Glenn

This is an intermediate level presentation. Participants should have prior knowledge of vocabulary pertaining to the Big 8 Social Identities: Age, Ability, Religion & Spirituality, Socioeconomic Status & Class, Sex & Gender, Sexual Orientation, Ethnicity, and Race & Color. A document is included for their review. This course will move fast and involves a large focus on race, religion, and law in the context of history.
Students should be prepared to engage in materials on their screen and in breakout rooms. It will help to be using a desktop or screen rather than a phone.
The interfaith movement has a responsibility to include anti-racist, intersectional ideas and actions into its framework. In this session, we will discuss how frameworks such as Critical Race Theory, Intersectionality, and Anti-racism build on one another and must be used within interfaith work. Then, we will use this framework to interrogate our history, individual beliefs and the religious spaces we have been or will be exposed to in order to become anti-racist interfaith leaders. We hope that participants will leave with these imperatives:
  1. Holding religious institutions accountable to anti-racist actions and policies can happen with pressure from insiders and from interfaith groups and organizations.
  2. These institutions much acknowledge white supremacy in their roots and in the new form it takes in the present.
  3. Religious organizations need to use social capital for social change. It’s not enough to have statements. Money, social capital, for structural change.
  4. Interrogating internal implicit biases as an individual is crucial to further the study of religion and evolving practices for communities. Individuals must be seeking to be anti-racist within their religious practice to hold institutions accountable and vice versa
This presentation is a result of an Interfaith Youth Core “We are Each Other’s Racial Equity and Interfaith Cooperation” Award.

Eco-Spirituality: Eco-alienation to Eco-belonging
ZOOM LINK
Jessica Cudney & Michelle Rozek (Way of Belonging)


Our topic, "Eco-Spirituality: Eco-Alienation to Eco-Belonging '' focuses on how our current human-centric culture is rooted in white supremacy and is the source of separation between people and planet. We discuss the intersecting oppressive forces that divide us and contribute to our current eco-crisis. From here, we imagine, explore and guide participants into an eco-centric way of living that is rooted in eco-spiritual embodiments.
Attendees can expect to takeaway 1) a greater understanding of the intersections between white supremacy culture and eco-alienation 2) awareness of the current culture of eco-alienation and the conditions that contribute to its perpetuation, and 3) eco-spiritual embodiments and resources that cultivate eco-belonging.
You should bring a nature object, journal, pen, and colored pencils to this session.

Relational Resilience in the Red Tent

Lara Struckman
We will explore the importance of community, presence, and using trauma informed tools to build emotionally resilient individuals and groups to rebuild and restore societal structures and systems from a place of love rather than lack. We will look at ways diverse traditions have been used as a spiritual framework for social justice and how we can sustain our activism through restorative practices. Threads of spiritual practice will be interwoven to remind us of the spiritual roots of activism that have built our foundation in many ways forgotten. We recognize and welcome those from different and varied backgrounds, experiences, and identities to begin to heal from the different ways we each experience trauma whether that is by being complicit in a place of privilege or experiencing discrimination or oppression and how we can meet ourselves wherever we are in the system in order to walk towards a more just and loving world together.

Faith + Justice in the Age of Black Lives Matter
ZOOM LINK
Olivia Elder - FWD.us
At its core, Olivia's breakout session will be about what "liberation" and "justice" mean and who they're for. She will provide a faith-based narrative history of the American criminal legal system, but she will also provide allegory for the global struggle to be free. While this training will be largely presented in a racial justice frame, Olivia will lay out the argument that Black Lives Matter, Abolish the Police, Families Belong Together, Abolish ICE, Love is Love are all one call -- a call that belongs to all people of faith, because our faith tells us so. Every global faith tradition (and many non-traditional traditions that function like faith) focuses on justice, redemption, and family. The systems that we live under in the US are designed to separate Black and Brown families, focus on punishment rather than redemption, and are inherently unjust. All of us are called to fight for something better for all of us -- liberation of everyone depends on the liberation of the least among us.

In God We Trust: A Discussion on the American Narrative of Christian Supremacy and White Nationalism
ZOOM LINK
Allison Blackwell
This session will discuss the various chapters of the longstanding, though often unacknowledged, narrative of Christian supremacy in America. We will start with a brief exploration of historical Christian supremacy, focus-in on Christian supremacy’s relationship to white supremacy and Christian extremism, and then move into a discussion on modern day white nationalism, especially as evidenced in the attack on the Capitol on January 6th. This session will demonstrate the historical privilege that white Protestant Christians have held throughout American history, explore some of the ways in which our societal narratives discriminate against other religions and spiritualities, and highlight the various tools individuals may use in approaching difficult conversations surrounding these topics. In order to effectively challenge white supremacy and nationalism, we must first understand it; the basis of that comprehension is what I hope to provide in this session. This discussion will be built around education, conversation, and reflection, but if you would like to take notes please bring a writing utensil and paper. No background knowledge in this subject is necessary.

Perspectives on Spiritual Practice for Social Justice

One goal of successful interfaith engagement is coming together for collective action and social justice in response to the systemic marginalization that many different identities experience.

Joel Harter is a Christian chaplain with a Buddhist-informed mindfulness practice and advisor for Elon Yoga Club and Iron Tree Blooming Meditation Club.
