#HopeRising Online Book Club

Hello friends! Over the past few months I’ve been having the same conversation with a few friends: how do we create the kind of change and healing we want to see in our culture? Specifically surrounding issues like racism, sexism and bigotry. Mostly we keep coming back to the reality that we have to be willing to walk alongside one another as we navigate the reality of these experiences. This is one small way to do that and we hope you’ll join us. This book club will be a safe place for people who are in the midst of waking up to social issues within the world and will take place entirely online (via a secret Facebook page). Everything you post within the group will only show up for members of the group – you don’t need to worry about your vulnerability spilling over into your friend’s neighbor’s babysitter’s feed.

Together we will be reading books and creating conversation around subjects that create a new narrative around things like:

  • Racism, white privilege and white fragility
  • Growth and awareness surrounding LGBTQIA
  • Feminism
  • Leaving fundamentalism
  • (and more)

If you are interested in growing within a community that is committed to respectful, challenging conversation around these subjects, please fill out the form to be added. Please know that everyone will be expected to adhere to the group guidelines (and since you’re here in the first place – we are so confident it’ll never be an issue).

We will post every month’s book selection mid-month so that everyone has time to purchase it. We are so excited to kick off on February 1, 2017!

After a long hiatus, we are returning soon!
