" When all is hopeless, when neoliberalism has won, when there exists no chance of establishing justice, the only choice left for the oppressed is to "screw" with the structure, literally turning over the bankers‘ tables at the temple. By upsetting the norm, an opportunity might arise that can lead us to a more just situation, although such acts of defiance usually lead to crucifixion. Hopelessness is what leads to radical liberative praxis”

- Miguel A De La Torre

Racism is not always conscious, explicit, or readily visible—often it is systemic and structural. Systemic and structural racism are forms of racism that are pervasively and deeply embedded in systems, laws, written or unwritten policies, and entrenched practices and beliefs that produce, condone, and perpetuate widespread unfair treatment and oppression of people of color. Yet, we as people of faith profess a hope for a better future.

  • How do we understand hope?
  • Are we able to abide in a place of hopelessness with those who are suffering?
  • How might our conscious and unconscious biases influence our experience and understanding of hope?

These are a few of the questions that our guest speaker The Rev. Liz Muñoz will help us wrestle with in our upcoming anti-racism training which will look at racism through a Latinx perspective.

Maria Elizabeth “Liz” Muñoz is a Chicana activist priest who has served churches in Oakland, Los Angeles and Chicago. She currently serves as a minister with San Francisco Night Ministry. Liz is also practitioner of liberation/mujerista theology, a bilingual preacher, a Godly Play teacher and a community organizer who delights in knitting together all these spiritual disciplines within intergenerational liturgies and in the formation of saints of all ages. She has served on the boards of Directors of Clergy and Laity United for Economic Justice in the L.A. areas, Arise Chicago, the Community Renewal Society in Chicago. She was recently elected to the Episcopal Impact Fund in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Upon registration, we will send a copy of “The Care of Souls from the Underside of Hope: A Latinx Perspective” by Miguel A. De La Torre for you to read prior to the training.

Please bring your own lunch. Light continental breakfast items, coffee and tea will be provided.
