Race, Reconciliation, and Courage —  Creating the World We Want

Friday, April 24–Sunday, April 26, 2015 at Middle Collegiate Church in New York City


In troubling times like these, moral courage demands that leaders— preachers and teachers; activists and artists; entertainers and entrepreneurs—undertake and encourage courageous conversations about race. Race and the school to prison pipeline. Race and police reform. Race and economic equality. Race and voting rights. Race and immigration. Race and mass incarceration. If we are to heal our nation, we will need to have conversations that lead to reconciliation and a peaceful revolution that creates the world we want.


Come make strategies for change with presenters like James A. Forbes, Jr. of the Drum Major Institute; Taquiena Boston of the Unitarian Universalist Association; Macky Alston of Auburn Media; Peter Heltzel of the Micah Institute; Michael-Ray Mathews of PICO; Miguel De La Torre of Iliff School of Theology; Obery Hendricks of New York Theological Seminary; Robert Hardies of All Souls Church Unitarian in Washington, D.C.; Irshad Manji of Moral Courage Project; and Jacqui Lewis and the Middle Church team.


The questions before us are compelling.

  • How do we articulate a practical theology that leads to  an antiracist society?
  • How do we address both personal and systemic racism,  and how do we heal from its scars?
  • What tactics do we need to create and sustain an interracial, interdisciplinary, interreligious movement for shalom?

The Middle Project invites you to its ninth annual conference, The Leading Edge: Race, Reconciliation, and Courage—Creating the World We Want. Join a community of social architects committed to heal our nation of racism and to create a more just society.
