It’s Time to Act: Four-Act Forum Series
Act Three: Before Jesus Was White: Unlearning Our Truths featuring Rev. Dr. Curtiss DeYoung and Anthony Galloway
The goal of eliminating racism is within our reach. It begins with conversation, and it’s propelled by action.
Join YWCA Minneapolis in its mission to break through the barriers that perpetuate racism. The inaugural It’s Time to Act! is a four-act forum series that will empower participants to engage in deeper conversations around race, equity, faith and social justice issues. You will hear from experts who will inspire you to intentionally take action on equity issues in your surrounding community.
Honest conversations about race allow us to find common ground and develop trusting relationships that make it possible to move toward a more equitable community together. The experts brought together for It’s Time to Act! have dedicated their work to fueling these conversations. They’ll lead the way for attendees to create a step-by-step action plan as part of a cohort or as an individual.
This forum features Rev. Dr. Curtiss Paul DeYoung and Anthony Galloway. Rev. Dr. Curtiss Paul DeYoung is the CEO of the Minnesota Council of Churches. He is the author and editor of eleven books on reconciliation, interfaith social justice activism, racism and cultural diversity. Anthony Galloway is the executive director of Arts Us, a center for African Diasporic Art, Culture and Science. Anthony is a co-host of Counter Stories, an award winning podcast on MPR News.
