Working for Racial Justice: Montgomery, Minneapolis, and Omaha (Oct 2-4)

Learn from community partners working for racial justice in Montgomery, Minneapolis, and Omaha as you reflect with others from Creighton.

Registration is now available and more details can be found at http://blogs.creighton.edu/ccsj/working-for-racial-justice-montgomery-minneapolis-and-omaha/

Join us for the “Working for Racial Justice: Montgomery, Minneapolis, and Omaha” weekend experience. In collaboration with our community partners in Minneapolis, Montgomery, and Omaha, participants will explore the history of the racial justice movement in the United States, learn about current issues in racial justice through the lens of our community partners, see how partners are working for racial justice in our local community, and highlight assets and leaders of North Omaha. Ending the weekend, participants will hear about the next steps for Creighton in addressing racial justice on and off-campus.

Participants will be placed in groups with whom they will reflect on the content over the course of the weekend and engage in Ignatian Advocacy and inclusive conversations about racial justice. “Working for Racial Justice” will introduce participants to ways to be involved in positive change after the weekend.

Open to all Creighton students, faculty, staff, and alumni.

The planned schedule is as follows (subject to change):

Friday Oct. 2: 4-9 p.m.

Saturday Oct. 3: 10 a.m. — 8 p.m.

Sunday Oct. 4: 10 a.m. – 1:30 p.m.

We are planning to be all virtual with a few possible extra options for participants in Omaha.
