Good Monday morning, Evanston.
With the city’s reparations program now underway, Evanston’s interfaith community gathered with the aim of reinforcing why people of faith are called to support the effort.
Five Evanston churches convened a three-part conference series, called “Faith, Justice & Reparations in Evanston” that featured online presentations which began in late September and ended in early October.
“[I hope] my community walks away with a real understanding that faith communities get that reparation are … called for by us as people of faith; that indeed, this is a part of our core belief system,” said Jacqueline Eddy, one of the event organizers and a member at Northminster Presbyterian.
