JONAH Religious Leaders

JONAH Religious Leaders

As faith leaders of the JONAH organization, it is our task to be the theological catalyst – feeding the JONAH Board, teams and task forces, with important issues we witness in our community – and to be a faithful arm of JONAH that brings awareness, conversation and education to those issues.
Our primary focus in 2015 will relate to racism, prejudice, and bigotry in the greater Chippewa Valley. In response to recent community happenings that include an inappropriate reference to the Holocaust; a Hmong beating; and media reports alleging excessive use of force in other communities, commencing in April, we are planning a series of Community Conversations that will help provide faithful responses to hatred and bias.

We seek to raise awareness for the issue, come together in conversation, to educate around racial discrimination, discuss how we might become aware of our own biases, and begin to change we view and treat one another.

The Religious Leaders’ Session (RLS) meets over the lunch hour (12-1:30 PM) on the 2nd Tuesday of every month. See the JONAH Calendar for the location of the next meeting.
