One way to control people is to constantly divert their attention from critical issues and their root causes with a sideshow that is difficult to look away from. This is true for those of us who are committed to overcoming the white supremacy that is so deeply built into our society.
For the February discussion we encourage you to think of ways that white supremacy affects you personally, and how you can challenge it on a day-to-day basis. What are the distractions that are designed to keep us from doing the work of personal transformation, of building trust across differences?
Accessing the Forum
Please remember to come into the church from the large parking lot on the north side of the church that is accessible off of Glencoe St, that is just east of the church. The door to the church you should use is the one that opens onto that parking lot. If you have passengers with mobility difficulties, you can pull up to that entrance and then park in the lot or on the street. We will be meeting downstairs in the youth lounge this month. Go down the stairs on the right inside the door, or go acorss the ventibule and take the elevaotor in the short hallway to the lower level.
IMPORTANT UPDATE: Many of you have heard that Park Hill United Methodist Church is now a sanctuary location with a family currently seeking refuge there. Security has been enhanced as we continue to be welcomed to use the building for our meetings. We can only enter the building from the parking lot where someone will be there to open the door for us. You may not be able to gain access if you are more than 45 minutes late.
The Second Tuesday Race Forum meets on the second Tuesday of each month from September to June at the Park Hill United Methodist Church at Montview Blvd and Glencoe St. in Denver. Here is a link to a map on Google: https://goo.gl/maps/oekAR4UReYn
