Latest Karen House News

rt coverOur new RoundTable entitled “Every 20 Years…” is out!

Two October Events:

1. Big Work Day at Karen House!

We will be cleaning, doing light maintenance and general sprucing up of Karen House! We could use some help in getting these great projects completed!

2. Round Table Discussion: Wrestling with White Supremacy in Direct Service

Are you part of a group that does social service (in the realms housing, medical care, education, mental health, food, etc.) but wonder how racism may manifest in this group? Please join the St. Louis Catholic Worker to discuss the ways that the ideology of white supremacy influences the work of direct service. We’ll be talking about these questions and more:

In what specific ways is racism inadvertently reinforced by social service groups?   What are the obstacles and opportunities to dismantling racism in these spaces?    How do we create organizations that promote dignity and liberation for all people?

Sunday, October 9th 2016  7:00-8:30pm

St. Louis Friends Meeting House – 1001 Park Avenue. St. Louis, MO 63104
