An intersectional lens shows us that many issues that women in general face are often compounded by racism and the socio-economic burdens related to unjust structures. As Catholic feminists, we are called to fight for equality for all women and to help remove the obstacles that stand in their way. For many of our sisters, that obstacle is racism. Join us as we learn from Jemar Tisby about practical ways to be active participants in the fight against racism. We will learn from successful examples and discuss how we can take this framework into our own relationships, parishes, work spaces, and communities. If you have found yourself asking how to effect real change in our current climate, come join us as we work together to bring this change into the world.
