SJ03 Oppression & Resistance

“Anybody who wants to create positive change in the world needs to have a working understanding of power. The Christian community, therefore, is that community that freely becomes oppressed, because they know that Jesus himself has defined humanity’s liberation in the context of what happens to the little ones. Anybody who wants to create positive change in the world needs to have a working understanding of power.”

James Cone, God of the Oppressed

SJ03 Oppression and Resistance is a social justice learning circle focusing on systems of oppressions (racism, sexism, heterosexism, colonialism, etc.), models of change, and theologies of resistance (liberation theology, feminist theology, queer theology, etc.). It will be an opportunity to explore the strategies of the marginalized to survive and make change. Register for SJ03 Oppression & Resistance
