Making #BlackLivesMatter in Green Bay: A Catholic Conversation

**Please RSVP (if able) by sending an email to: ann.herlache@norbertines.org***

Conversations about and protests for racial justice have returned with renewed fervor in the wake of the death of George Floyd and other black persons. Green Bay has been no exception to this. Acknowledging that our community is not immune from racism in our language, in our structures, or in our behaviors, we seek to place the urgency of this conversation into a distinctly Catholic key. To do so, we will gather over Zoom in order to engage three panelists who help us address the following questions: What is the experience of people of color in the Green Bay area? How is racism systemic, reaching far wider than any individual situation? How does our faith inform our beliefs and attitudes concerning racism? From here, all of us will be invited to enter the conversation in both small-group and large-group virtual formats.

Panel Moderator: Fr. Michael Brennan, O.Praem.

Panelists:
Stephanie Ortiz, Black Lives United–Green Bay
Craig A. Ford, Jr., Ph.D., Assistant Professor of Theology and Religious Studies, Saint Norbert College
Bridget Burke Ravizza, Ph.D., Professor of Theology and Religious Studies, Saint Norbert College
