Let's Talk About Race In America

The people of America and the world watched in horror as a police officer kneeled on the neck of George Floyd and listened as he begged for his life. His death, like the deaths of countless other people of color at the hands of police and white citizens, caused an outcry for change. But something shifted with the death of Mr. Floyd as more and more white citizens came forward and began to ask questions about what they could do. 

In answer to this question, we have developed a  course specifically for the white community to tackle these hard questions, to address behaviors that perpetuate systemic racism and to integrate anti-racism actions, small and large, in everyday life. This course, which was developed for the white community in general, has been augmented for the Baha'i Community to include Sacred Writings, Guidance, Focus on the Core Activities and living a cohesive life that allows you to address the unique role of white individuals who have embraced Baha'u'llah and His Teachings through the Baha'i Faith.

This is not a course where we deepen on the Writings of the Faith or study guidance extensively. This course focuses on assisting you in making an internal shift that affects HOW you are reading the Writings, consulting, interacting with friends of color, and showing up in multi-racial spaces.
