Sisters of Selma: The March to Dismantle Racism Continues
February 26 @ 8:30 am - 11:00 am
The Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet stand strong with their commitment of over 350 years: love their dear neighbor without distinction. We are in solidarity with one another. In our Catholic social teaching, that means “loving our neighbor without distinction” has global dimensions. In our circle, everyone is included. Dismantling discrimination, an area of concern that guides our social justice work, will be illustrated at our Linger Over Breakfast series, Sisters of Selma: The March to Dismantle Racism Continues, with Rosemary Flanigan, CSJ and Barbara Moore, CSJ, who marched on Selma in March 1965.
Join us as we mark the 55th anniversary of the marches from Selma, Alabama to the state capital of Montgomery, that were part of the civil rights movement in 1965. Sisters Rosemary and Barbara will share how their experiences at Selma shaped their futures, as well as their fellow sisters’, to be at the forefront of social justice issues. How far has our society come addressing racism, and where do we still need to go?
Doors open at 8:30 a.m. Program 9-11 a.m. $15 per session, breakfast included. Register online at Linger Over Breakfast by Wednesday, February 26. The event will take place at St. Teresa’s Academy, Windmoor Center 5600 Main St. Kansas City, MO
