The Racial Justice Team, in coordination with MSJC’s Steering Committee, organized an anti-racist training facilitated by Crossroads Antiracism Organizing and Training in February of 2022. As a group, participants:
The Racial Justice Team has offered the Seeing White podcast series and dialogue for the Marianist Family to engage in more intentional, internal conversations and provide more space for conversion of hearts in regard to racial equity. It is helpful for us as as family to hold the mirror up to our own shortcomings and opportunities for growth and intentional invitation to address the evil of racism that still exists in our communities.
This program has now been run with five different cohorts and the Racial Justice Team is working to create follow up programming for past participants.
The Racial Justice Issue Team is exploring ways our Marianist institutions are and/or could be living out the Church's mission of racial justice. Similar to how some Marianist schools have successfully addressed environmental sustainability efforts, we feel racial justice could become an integral part of how we talk about and do things at an institutional level.
