Don’t let the date scare you off! This GraceCity sponsored Pressure Points event promises a safe space to engage in learning and discussion around this critical issue. Our expert presenters will discuss practices of discrimination shaping Baltimore and its neighborhoods, while diving into the causes and consequences of residential segregation. Our interactive evening will include break-out discussion groups, plenty of Q&A, and stories from GraceCity members highlighting the diversity of perspectives and experiences of living in Baltimore. The evening will conclude with a facilitated conversation about ways in which individuals and institutions can address segregation, promote inclusivity, champion reconciliation, and generate opportunities for all Baltimore residents.
Come find out how you could mentor one-on-one a child from our SHARPkids afterschool program. A mentor is a caring adult who takes initiative to develop a personal, growing relationship with a young person.
Come join the conversation…Where do Christians stand in the conversation on engaging in Environmental Stewardship. Please RSVP and share this even with your friends and neighbors.
Pressure Points is back and we are excited to announce our upcoming conversations. Invite your friends, neighbors, and co-workers!
Pressure Points aims to provide a safe space where we…
Interact and engage across diverse backgrounds and perspectives
Practice speaking from our own experiences and learning from the experiences of others
