The Wilmette Institute invites you to attend its third Project Center Gathering on Sunday, September 25 at 4 pm Eastern Time. This Zoom meeting is open to all, and will feature presentations from the organizers of 3 or 4 local projects. After the presentations, attendees will be invited to join Zoom breakout rooms for more intimate interaction with the project teams.
Register on Zoom for September 25 Gathering. We will send reminders nearer the time. If you are Bahá’í, please consider which friends of all religious or spiritual backgrounds you might invite to attend with you. Like the Anti-Black Racism in the U.S. and Building a Unified Society course, the gathering is open to all.
About the Project Center
The Project Center is an evolving collaborative resource where participants who have taken the Wilmette Institute course, ‘Anti-Black Racism in the US and Building a Unified Society,’ can continue supporting each other and learning about meaningful action to uphold racial justice and race unity. It is a space to build relationships and reflect on Bahá’u’lláh’s central principle of the oneness of humanity and “its demanding implications for the profound alteration of thought and action required at this time.” (Ref: Universal House of Justice, To the Baha’is of the United States of America, 22 July 2020.)
The Project Center’s planning team is led by Jeanais Brodie, WI Adjunct Faculty serving on the faculty team for Anti-Black Racism in the U.S. and Building a Unified Society. Other valued members of the team include Naree Chan, Renee Depew, Eleanor Mitten, Derrick Stone, and Nicola Daniels.
The deadline for submitting a presentation proposal to the Project Center is Monday, September 5. If you are involved in planning local initiatives with race unity or social justice objectives, you may submit proposals by filling out this online Project Center Presentation form.
