In May, some members of our congregation participated in Continued Equity Education Series 1, an interfaith film and Zoom discussion series offered by Rev. Gabrielle Kennedy, director of Faith and for the Sake of All (https://faithandforthesakeofall.org/) an organization committed to educating faith and conscience communities about health disparities in and other life outcomes between African American and white St. Louisans, and working toward action steps to address those disparities.

We invite you to a congregational version of that film and discussion series in July moderated by participants in the Continued Equity Education Series.
