“We Cannot Walk Alone”: 
Anti-Racism and Allyship
-A Panel Discussion 

Tuesday, March 9, 6:30-8:00pm
(A live-streamed experience)

Moderator:

Rev. Dr. Janet Forbes

Panel Guests:

M. Garlinda Burton

Jordan Lee

Rev. Ken Brown

In July 2020 a group from CSE came together as a community to engage in self-reflection, education and action to support and to stand in solidarity with those experiencing racism in our community.  Out of these conversations grew a need to reach out to our larger community with a much larger conversation.

As a result, we have created a panel discussion, “We Cannot Walk Alone”: Anti-Racism and Allyship which will be held on March 9, 2021 from 6:30 to 8pm Mountain Standard Time.  We’ve brought together an amazing group of leaders and educators involved in the work of anti-racism.

  • M. Garlinda Burton – journalist, educator, and justice advocate, serving as Interim General Secretary for the General Commission on Religion and Race of The United Methodist Church

  • Rev. Ken Brown – Senior Pastor, Trinity United Methodist Church, Denver, CO

  • Jordan Lee – sophomore at CU Boulder and content creator for a social media campaign called “Unmask the Racism”

“We Cannot Walk Alone” is a quote from Martin Luther King’s renowned “I Have a Dream” speech which exemplifies our purpose to seek greater connection in the fight to dismantle racism.  We hope you will join us for this event and become a part of the global movement of justice and making positive change.
