This year our 6th annual Transform Network National Gathering will be held in partnership with the 10th annual Leading Edge conference, at Middle Collegiate Church in NYC.
Our nation is in a crisis. Though there is only one race — the human race — racism is a construct with lethal consequences. People die while in its custody. Racism has annihilated the souls of citizens and ripped out the heart of our nation. Recent surveys show that 60% of the people in our nation think race relations are in a significant decline, that our dream for justice and equality is dying on the vine.
Activists, analysts, preachers, poets, prophets, teachers, trainers, writers, queer, and straight folk of all faiths ready to make a change: Come and bring your hopes, disappointments, and dreams. We must disrupt the narrative of white supremacy if we are to be free. We need tools, tactics, and truth-telling to dismantle racism. We will learn and teach each other the best practical wisdom for movement-making, mingled with theoretical underpinnings and theological reflection. In plenaries, short talks, and small group conversations surrounded by music and art, we will create strategies for change.
Ours is #PropheticGrief. Even in our anger and tears, we are ready to organize. We are not powerless, we can do something about this. This is a multi-faith, multi-racial movement. Those of us who are disgusted with the status quo are called to join the movement, if we are to save our nation, our world, and save our souls.
