Green Street Reads
Green Street Church’s Anti-Racism Team invites you to join our Green Street Reads book club. Together we’ll explore the intersections of race and racism with other matters of justice in the context of a faith community that is committed to LGBTQ+ inclusion, anti-racism, and poverty alleviation. Our book club will focus mostly on fiction, encouraging participants to bring imagination and empathy to stories that illuminate the challenges facing our nation and our church today. You don't have to be a church member or even a Christian to participate, but you can expect our conversations to center on a commitment to anti-racism in the context of a faith community.
