Power, Privilege, and the Common Good: An Evening with Amy Julia Becker

AJB squares-03.png

We are partnering with Common Good RVA to host an evening with author, speaker, and thinker (and friend of Third!) Amy Julia Becker, who will help us name the problems of privilege—who it excludes and how it harms—and the importance of taking that knowledge and moving towards confession and humble, loving, collective action. Amy Julia’s latest book is White Picket Fences: Turning Toward Love in a World Divided by Privilege (NavPress, 2018).

Our evening will conclude with a time of Q&A moderated by Corey Widmer.

Tuesday, November 13
7:00 - 8:30 p.m.
Fellowship Hall

This event is free, but please let us know if you’re coming
