The Leading Edge Conference 2016: Revolutionary Love—Tools, Tactics, and Truth-telling to Dismantle Racism

  • Middle Collegiate Church (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Our nation is in a crisis. Though there is only one race — the human race — racism is a construct with lethal consequences. People die while in its custody. Racism has annihilated the souls of citizens and ripped out the heart of our nation. Recent surveys show that 60% of the people in our nation think race relations are in a significant decline, that our dream for justice and equality is dying on the vine.

At the 10th annual Leading Edge Conference and the 6th annual Transform Network Gathering, we will learn and teach each other the best practical wisdom for movement-making, mingled with theoretical underpinnings and theological reflection. In plenaries, short talks, and small group conversations surrounded by music and art, we will create strategies for change.
