St. Louis-Area Disciples Summit on Racial Justice

The St. Louis-Area Disciples Summit on Racial Justice, held on September 19, 2015, was an opportunity to gather and challenge Disciples to forge a unique mission imperative for racial justice in the St. Louis area. In cooperation with other Disciples, the NBA has supported local efforts for justice and racial reconciliation following the fatal shooting of Michael Brown in August 2014. This event brought St. Louis-area congregations together to dialogue around issues of racial justice and to equip congregations theologically and emotionally to enter, and sustain, this difficult work.

We share the following resources from the St. Louis-Area Summit, for anyone interested in issues of racial justice, white privilege, and reconciliation, as well as other congregations or organizations interested in hosting a similar summit in their communities.
