Friday Update

Womanism Then and Now
July 7, 2024, at 10:00 a.m. 
Online and in-person
Rev. Joyce Palmer
Womanism is a term coined by Alice Walker and embraced by feminist women of color in a variety of fields. Today I will share what I understand womanism to mean and how it’s focus on Black women’s voices and concerns can open our minds and hearts to the beauty of inclusion and the need for retreat.

Order of Service

We will share the plate with Rockford Urban Ministries
Mission: To change lives and communities through social action.
What we do: Listen and respond to the needs of the community. Take risks to advocate for meaningful change and proven policy initiatives, even and especially when they are unpopular. Share our views with elected officials at the local, state, and federal levels. Offer trainings and teach-ins about important issues. Partner with community organizations in the Rockford region
