Naming The Other Pandemic: Systemic Racism

This week we start the first of a special series looking at how people of faith from across traditions are confronting racism and responding to the call for change.  We begin in Minnesota’s Twin Cities. 

Before the national and international protests and before the senseless death of George Floyd, faith leaders in Minneapolis raised concerns about police brutality, the aggressive use of force and racial profiling.  

After a week of protests and demonstrations, we begin our series hearing from leaders of a faith-based coalition in Minnesota that has been working to address economic and racial inequality since the 1970s.  

This conversation features Rev. Janae Bates, Rev. Christian Briones, Rev. Dr. Ronald Bell, and Imam Asad Zaman and host Amber Khan.
