Gender Equity Listening Session
Thursday, November 7, 2019
Ainsworth United Church of Christ
2941 NE Ainsworth St, Portland, OR 97211
Our wider church delegates passed a resolution, ( http://cpcjusticeandwitness.com/gender-equity/ ) to address gender equity and safety for women and non-binary people in church leadership, last month, at the Central Pacific Conference (CPC) Annual Gathering. To put this resolution into action, the CPC Justice & Witness Ministry Team is hosting several listening sessions. This first session will consider questions such as, How do we begin to address gender bias and discrimination within the church? Why is it is difficult to talk about gender bias within the church? What are barriers that need to be addressed so that we can talk more freely? Please join us, and include your voice in this important conversation for women and non-binary people of UCC. An RSVP to Rev. Liz Durant (firstname.lastname@example.org) is very helpful, and not required. Light refreshments will be served.
