I have made a prayerful decision to attend an important luncheon at the end of March. It is a luncheon at Quaker Station for Summit County diverse leaders from business, education, arts, and community service. We will come together to move Akron and Summit County forward through honest conversation about race.
The goal is to educate the community about facets of racism, equity, and inclusion, to engage stakeholders in dialogue, discussion, and self-reflection, and lastly, to empower our community to lead sustainable change.
I have never really branched out in this social justice direction for any parish and feel called at this time of my life to learn more about race in Summit County and lead IHM parishioners who are interested in this kind of education and sharing.
Our own diocesan office recommends attending this luncheon.
