Join me as I lead the Center for Inclusivity’s 2019 #MakeLoveLouder campaign - a tongue-in-cheek, counter-protest organized to inject humanity, laughter, love, and affirmation into an emotionally and spiritually toxic space at the Chicago Pride Parade! We'll station ourselves directly in front of the cordoned off protest area, offering a message of support, solidarity, and care for paraders--in contrast to the messages of bigotry, shame, and stigma projected by those behind us.
Join me and my friends at the Union of Affirming Christians, SAGE, and PFLAG National for “a discussion on the state of national LGBTQ policy and legislation and how faithful voices can and should play a role in advocating for full inclusion for all God's children. We'll hear from several faith leaders and policy experts, and there will be time for audience Q&A. Drinks and appetizers will be provided, and all are welcome.”
Join Alicia and a host of dynamic preachers, teachers, and justice workers in Dallas as they speak boldly about justice and the Gospel of Jesus.
Alicia’s friends at Red Letter Christians shared “It’s time for gospel preaching and prophetic witness. It’s time to return to the things Jesus said.” So come out and connect with people who desire to see faith come into contact with the pursuit of equity and inclusion for those experiencing marginalization.
Admission to this event is FREE! Speakers include Shane Claiborne, Rev. Dr. William J. Barber II, Rev. Alexia Salvatierra, Rev. Dr. Frederick Douglass Haynes III, Rev. Dr. Jacqui Lewis, Tony Campolo, and others.
“How can we imagine then cultivate and sustain communities, institutions, and social groups that are equitable and inclusive?”
During this workshop, participants will explore what inclusivity means for communities whose members span a range of ideological and demographic difference then unpack what challenges lie in cultivating environments that are equitable, affirming, and healing for others as well as themselves. Students, faculty, and staff alike will use reflection and small group discussion to interrogate inclusivity through the lens of identity with emphasis given to thing like race, class, sexual orientation, gender, disability, and religious and spiritual identity. Additionally, faculty and staff will examine the roles they play in promoting healthy student identity development and exploration.
Join Alicia as she facilitates Center for Inclusivity’s monthly Open Gathering. The focus of this month’s digital meeting is “Caring for Ourselves”.
Session Description: “Self care” is an increasingly popular term that gets misused and is often misunderstood. What *is* self care and why should people engage in it? Join us for this community conversation that explores what compromises our wellness, what makes care necessary, and what practices for for self care could be.
