NOVEMBER 14                   WHITE PRIVILEGE: LET’S TALK

Wednesday          6:30 pm.

White Privilege: Let’s Talk—A Resource for Transformational Dialogue is an adult curriculum from the United Church of Christ that’s designed to invite church members to engage in safe, meaningful, substantive, and bold conversations on race.

Divided into four focused parts, each one introduces a different aspect of the dynamic of white privilege:

1. The Spiritual Autobiography Told Through the Lens of Race
2. Whiteness as the Norm: Five Loci of Insights on the Binary of Light/Dark and Black/White
3. The Cash Value of Whiteness or Whiteness as a Tax-Exempt Status
4. On Becoming an Ally

In all four parts, each author contributes a different view of the subject matter presented based on their unique personal experiences. The materials include questions for discussion and reflection.

NOVEMBER 27                   ZERO HUNGER. ZERO WASTE

Tuesday          6:30-8 pm

St. John’s UCC Economic Justice Team will host a program on Kroger’s Zero Hunger, Zero Waste Initiative, 6:30–8 p.m., Nov. 27, at St. John’s UCC, 130 S. Walnut St. Erin Rolfes, Kroger media contact for the Cincinnati/Dayton division, will be the guest speaker.

According to a 2017 report by the Natural Resources Defense Council, or NRDC, the United States throws out 400 lbs. of food per person per year. This is not only a waste of food that could be directed to the hungry, but a waste of resources. The Zero Hunger, Zero Waste Initiative represents Kroger’s effort to end hunger in local communities and eliminate waste throughout its stores by 2025.

The Economic Justice Team, whose goals include the conservation of resources and the reduction of waste, invites the public to attend this free event.
