With the recent targeting of persons of color with Ku Klux Klan leaflets and events in Ferguson, Mo., Staten Island, NY, and Charleston, SC., many across the United States have come to question whether our nation can ever achieve racial equality within our institutions and social interactions. The St. Paul’s Episcopal Cathedral and College Street Congregational Church will be partner sites when a leading group of activists, scholars, authors, artists and experts on racial inequality come together to hold life-giving conversations on the racial issues of our time, including structural racism, mass incarceration, and policy change at Trinity Institute’s 45th National Theological Conference, “Listen for a Change: Sacred Conversations for Racial Justice.”

A Panel of local experts on racism in Chittenden County and in Vermont will speak. Panel members include:

  • Hal Colston, Director of Neighborkeepers and 2014 Burlington Free Press Vermonter of the Year
  • Dr. Sylvia Perry, Assistant Professor, Department of Psychological Science at UVM, and author of many papers on issues related to racism and bias awareness
  • Wanda Hines, Executive Director of the Joint Urban Ministry Project (JUMP), and community activist

The panel is being moderated by Sally May, Interim Associate Pastor at First Congregational Church, Burlington.
