How do we partner with our urban neighbors in equitable and mutually liberating ways?
How do education, advocacy, service and activism affect life in urban areas?
How do we even define urban areas now in the face gentrification and multiculturalism?
How can people of faith help transform systemic oppression and poverty into interdependent, equitable access and resources for thriving communities?
The good news is: we don’t have to invent the answers to these questions. Solutions are already underway in many places, and Transform is excited to bring practitioners of this work together. Bring your toolbox, get ready to add to it, and let’s go deep this weekend at the intersection of action and contemplation. Register online now!
