JUSTmove Block Party Tomorrow!

Westwood’s Racial Equity Team is hosting the evening with a featured performance by JUSTmove. JUSTmove is Joe Davis and Dave Scherer (Agape)’s antiracism education thru the arts organization. They use music, poetry, and storytelling to inspire people into deeper conversations about race and culture.  This is a great way to spark family conversations! 

There will be 6pm worship led by JUSTmove, educational booths, BLM t-shirts & JUSTmove CD sales, Hope Speaks Project booth, activities for kids, & free ice cream treats for all. It’s also our Westwood + Redeemer Night! We hope you can come!
While you’re at it, bring friends, family, & neighbors!  We hope anyone who is interested will come enjoy the evening and learn with us!

Saturday March 6th, 10-11am. Wear masks! Bring sleds!

More Anti-Racism Resources

Who am I? Deepening Our Conversations About Race.
Friends, our world is reminding us, yet again, that we have work to do and that it’s everyone’s work to do. It isn’t a box we get to check. Our work continues and is imperative as we begin to understand systemic racism more fully.

As Westwood Staff, we’re committed to doing this anti-racism work with you. We’ve done some digging to find resources that will help you in this work and we want to pass it along because it has been helpful to us in our anti-racism work.

As Jen said in the post below, we’d love to hear from you about resources you have found helpful, and we’ll keep adding to these lists! Send us what you’re reading, and watching and listening to, so that others can learn alongside you! You’ll keep seeing this logo as we keep adding to our lists!
