Theology on Tap

2020 Kickoff Event

How Individuals Change Society: The Role of Faith in Transforming Racial Injustice
Wednesday, June 24
7 p.m.

2020 has been quite a year! In response to recent events, our Theology on Tap Kickoff will be a Facebook Live event, featuring the Most Reverend Bishop Joseph N. Perry, auxiliary Bishop of the Archdiocese of Chicago, and Ms. Tanya Woods, Executive Director of the Westside Justice Center. These two prominent Black leaders in Chicago will honestly discuss the history of racial injustice in the Catholic Church and in our country, the circumstances that have led to our current situation, and the role of faith in Jesus and personal responsibility moving forward toward transformation and change.

This virtual event will be a time to hear from members of the Black community in Chicago, to learn more about their experiences and those they work with, and to imagine how we can reform, heal and grow to identify, love and give voice to all of our brothers and sisters, both spiritually and practically. The evening will include ample time for Q&A.
