Rent the video from the 2022 Justice Summit here

The 2022 SNEUCC Justice Summit was a ground-breaking, day-long Conference gathering focused entirely on racial justice. It featured morning and afternoon worship, a plenary conversation about inclusion, workshops, a marketplace of ideas, and an opportunity for community to gather. Some 200 people participated in person at the First Church of Christ, Congregational in Glastonbury, CT, and online on September 24, 2022.

The worship service and plenary conversation were recorded and are now available for viewing. The on-demand video may be rented for 30 days at a cost of $20. Fees collected will help defray Justice Summit costs and fund other justice initiatives. (Note: All attendees who paid to register for the Summit have free access to the videos.  Contact methotk@sneucc.org.)

Why rent the video? The morning sermon, the plenary conversation and liturgical elements from both services invite viewers into deeper conversation about racial justice work in their local congregations and ministry contexts. Some congregations might choose to view some of the worship elements together and follow with a community conversation. Other congregations might choose to reuse some of the liturgical elements in their local contexts. Please feel free to use these materials -with appropriate attribution to the Southern New England Conference -in the ways helpful in your context

Racial Justice Organizing Assumptions

Why are the workshops not included? To support open and transparent conversation, workshops were not recorded. Attendees spent their time together discussing specific ways to move forward on racial justice efforts in their local congregations and communities.

How can I get or stay involved now? In January, the Conference will launch a monthly online convening during which interested people may share ideas, talk about what is going well in their work for racial justice and where they are having challenges, and learn from each other. The Conference staff will provide the infrastructure for the meetings, and content will be guided by the priorities of those who attend. These online meetings will be open to all.  Additional information will soon be available.

There are a variety of other ways to participate in Conference racial justice programs, from attending workshops, special worship services and events, becoming a facilitator for racial justice workshops, taking part in direct actions, and more. Contact methotk@sneucc.org for more information.
