"Prejudice is an emotional commitment to ignorance."
One Nation. Under God. Indivisible.
With Liberty and Justice For All.
Racialized violence has its roots at the foundation of our nation’s creation, but the truth has been buried beneath re-written narratives that downplay its horrors. As individuals and organizations began to commit themselves to understand the history of race in America over the last year, what should have been a moment of national reckoning became a political football.
The reason racial injustice remains an issue in America is that, at its core, it is a spiritual problem that manifests itself through political systems. 65% of Americans identify as Christian; more than both major political parties combined, so change won't happen in the halls of Congress until it first happens in the heart of the church. It is time for the Church to be the Church and right the wrongs of indifference in America.
WHY SHOULD I ATTEND?
It's time for conciliation. Join a like-minded community to discuss the issues that matter.
Unite with a community of like-minded Christians who are committed to live out our faith by righting the wrongs of racial injustice in America.
Refill your spiritual and emotional tank with encouraging stories of hope from the people who turned from hurtful ways as well as people who found the power to forgive what many would think unforgivable.
Hear from the nation’s foremost thought leaders in the areas of Christian theology, racial inequity, forgiveness, repentance and nonviolent social change as they provide practical tools to bring about personal conciliation.
It doesn't matter where you are in the world, you can join us from wherever you are. We want this information to be accessible to everyone, so join the conversation without the hassle of travel.

ABOUT FAITH & PREJUDICE
Faith & Prejudice is not simply an organization; it is a movement of Christians who are committed to living a life of radical love and humility as demonstrated by Jesus Christ; the type of love and humility that confronts and dismantles racism in America once and for all. We exist to concentrate the spiritual power it requires to eradicate the demonic spirit of racism from the United States.
Our goal is to unite Christians across color lines and denominations to confront the prejudices that have limited our ability to listen and learn so that we can mobilize. We desire to see the power of God bring healing to this land and, as such, we commit to walk humbly before God, pray and seek his face and turn from our wicked ways.
