To speak about “racial reconciliation” with empathy and grace is a laborious and sometimes puzzling journey.
I’m so thankful to partner with Latasha Morrison, founder and president of Be the Bridge, a leader in our community toward cultural intelligence and racial literacy.
It was a privilege to serve as a panelist for Be the Bridge’s most recent training resource, “Learn Tips on How to Talk to Children about Anti-Asian Racism & COVID-19.”
In this interview, BTB Educator Gina Fimbel, author/adoptee Tiffany Lavon, and I host dialogue on current events. We share principles and practices for families seeking to support their children during racial tensions that pressure our communities during COVID-19.
I’m inspired by Latasha’s aim for Be the Bridge:
She says, “No one is voiceless unless there’s a medical condition. The reality is, people are unheard. We spotlight the stories, the concerns and the injustices of marginalized people groups so that together we can Be the Bridge toward racial reconciliation.”
“Our heart and passion is to display God’s glory by inspiring the Church to have a distinctive and transformative response to racial division.”
“Our vision is that people and organizations are aware and responding to the racial brokenness and systemic injustice in our world. People are no longer conditioned by a racialized society but grounded in truth. All are equipped to flourish.”
Download the webinar here from the Be the Bridge. It’s a great way to listen, and a launchpad for actions you can put into practice immediately, in your own family and throughout your community, so that we all might flourish together.
