Achieving Zion: The Impact of Racism on Becoming One

Systemic racism is present in all communities, and Mormonism has uniquely benefitted from white-supremacy. During this session Dr. Mica McGriggs a psychologist and racial equity educator, will lead an exploration of the theological, relational, and personal aspects of racism. “Zion” cannot be achieved unless the sin of racism is rooted out and repented of. Restitution must be made within ourselves and our community. White Mormons all along the spectrum of orthodoxy must reconcile with their history and mythologized racial innocence in order to truly become one with self and community.
