Stay engaged and listen to understand. Our purpose for our events is to understand the presenter’s point of view. If you don’t agree with the perspective, please process that quietly and respectfully. We have limited time for attendees to speak, and reserve the right to cut participants off so that others have a chance to speak.
Be comfortable with being uncomfortable - If you don’t feel you can process quietly and respectfully, do not disrupt the event or you will be asked to leave. Instead, reach out to us through email at Jesusandjusticecollective@gmail.com and we can discuss in another forum.
Expect and accept non-closure - each of our events has a specific focus to talk about a problem that may affect one racial group or another more than others, and that focus may leave some people in the moment feeling angry. This is normal. What we can't have, though, is to have those feelings of anger take over the mission of healing and justice.
Speech that is hurtful to marginalized peoples will be called out. If the speaker persists in voicing their opinions hurtfully we will ask them to leave.
Our mission is to promote racial conciliation while glorifying God's design of diversity. If you are opposed to that mission, this event is not the place to express that opposition. If you disrupt the event we will ask you to leave.
