“Reimagining Our Journey Toward Racial Justice”
Saturday, January 18
with Reverend Dr. Gregory Edwards
Founder and Senior Pastor of the Resurrected Life Community Church (RLCC) and President and CEO of the Resurrected Community Development Corporation (RCDC), POWER Northeast Board Member
All are invited to a Kiddush-Luncheon and afternoon program in the Marcus Auditorium following services
As Germantown Jewish Centre prepares to focus and expand our long term commitment to racial justice work, we’ve invited Rev. Edwards to guide and inspire our work by examining how America’s long history of structural racism traps and impacts us all. Together we will experience a sample of “Courageous Conversations”, a structured process that can facilitate our work toward change.
Dr. Edwards has served on numerous local and regional boards, including POWER Northeast. He has spent the last 20 years building a racially diverse, culturally rich, community that has addressed racial, economic, and educational disparities within Allentown and throughout the greater Lehigh Valley.
Rev. Edwards holds a doctorate from Drew University in Transformative Justice and Public Policy. He also chosen as a post-grad to be one of 20 pastors nationwide to participate in the Martin Luther King, Jr. College of Pastoral Leadership at Morehouse College, for his exemplary leadership in advancing Martin Luther King’s Beloved Community through peace, truth, justice and nonviolent direct action.
