Lift Every Voice: Stories of Injustice & Learned Racism

December 6, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

The holidays are here – a season of love. But how can we love our neighbors when the city is so divided?

The summer of 2020 ushered in a new era of truth and advocacy that confronts our country’s history of racial discrimination and injustice. Beginning with the “Tampa Technique,” a documentary film about Tampa’s Central Avenue business, a conversation began about the need for a new social justice movement in our time. The dialogue that began there continues with this new event.

Lift Every Voice is a virtual storytelling event you won’t miss!

Storytelling can be a powerful tool in building bridges to our lived experiences. These stories will teach us to:

  1. Be better advocates for racial justice
  2. Be better allies to all people of color
  3. Know better and do better

Courageous conversations validate the lived experiences of injustice and discrimination of people in our lives and in our communities.

These are our friends and neighbors in Tampa Bay. They are people we love, in the city we love. Together, we can make this a better place and life for all.

The event is free and open to the public. Please pre-register.

Presented by The Justice Ministry of Hyde Park United Methodist.
