Centering BIPOC Voices is a monthly book discussion group with a specific purpose. The Centering BIPOC Voices book group reads books by Black, Indigenous, and People of Color authors. By reading non-fiction, fiction and memoirs we seek to better understand how racism and other forms of oppression affect all our lives. We expect better understanding will help us develop as anti-racists. 

Second Saturday of each month from 3:30 PM to 5:00 PM

If you wish to join one of the Second Saturday discussions contact Robin Gray, (email available in the church directory and from the office).
