Webinar: The Justice Buffet
Do you love the mission work of the church but want to have a deeper impact? Are you looking to find your place in the justice movement of this generation? Are you part of the movement, but have found yourself overwhelmed or confused by all the media, issues, options, and organizations? The Justice Buffet webinar is a great place for reflection and rejuvenation.
This webinar explores a framework for understanding movement work along with the graces and challenges of each space. In addition, participants will engage with justice leaders across the life of the church: living out the buffet in different contexts and justice passions.
Rev. Dr. Dietra Wise Baker, Program Coordinator for Advocacy and Activism at National Benevolent Association.
Rev. Dr. Dietra Wise Baker first began serving with NBA as an Organizing Specialist with the Ferguson Justice Initiative. In 2018, she transitioned to Program Coordinator for Advocacy and Activism. This work flows from NBA’s mission to “advocate for the well-being of humanity” and is done in collaboration and consistent communication with fellow NBA staff to equip NBA and our ministry partners to deepen engagement in advocacy and activism. Following the trajectory of the work begun with the Ferguson Justice Initiative, these efforts utilize relationships, wisdom, and processes built and tested through that work. Based in St. Louis, Missouri, Dietra nurtures engagement strategies with NBA and our partners to transform root causes of social injustice. This includes equipping and training partners to address the critical social justice issues most relevant to their work, and collaborating with staff to cultivate partnerships across the life of the church.
