Coffee Talk: Building Dialogue for Justice in Response to Hate & Violence

By Spokane FāVS

On Sunday, June 12, from 2–3:30 p.m., SpokaneFāVS will host its next Coffee Talk ‘Building Dialogue for Justice in Response to Hate and Violence’.

With all the recent racist attacks and mass shootings, there is a lot to process as a community and to think through about how we can move forward toward justice and transformation.

SpokaneFāVS’ next Coffee Talk brings together professionals in our community who will guide and inspire a discussion of how each of us can serve as agents of change. Panelists will speak, followed by a Q&A session.

Panelists are:

Dr. Joan Braune, Lecturer in Philosophy, Gonzaga University

Angela Schwendiman, Africana Studies Director, EWU

Dr. Pui-Yan Lam, Professor of Sociology and Justice Studies, EWU

Amy McColm, Education Committee Chair, Spokane NAACP

“I’m excited to hear our panel share their experiences and expertise that can guide us in considering how we can make a difference in the face of growing hate and violence,” said Julie Banks, SpokaneFāVS board member and this month’s Coffee Talk organizer.

“Our social problems seem overwhelming, but each of us has a role to play in maintaining social trust and practicing kindness every day. Together we can explore ideas to create a more caring community.”

The event will be held in person at the FāVS Center on 5115 S. Freya.

SpokaneFāVS is an online publication that offers religion news and commentary, and hosts offline engagement opportunities. Coffee Talks are forums where FāVS panelists involve the audience in a discussion on a timely topic related to faith and ethics.
