Join us Monday nights online 7:30-9 pm starting November 1st for a conversation focused on the history and legacy of racial injustice in our nation and the church using Jemar Tisby’s Color of Compromise as our guide. As we work to understand the past and share our own experiences and stories we will look for ways we can engage with the work of dismantling our own prejudices and the systems of injustice we find around us.
Join us for a 6 week small group study inviting Christians from all traditions to engage with biblical perspectives on wealth and poverty, share personal budgets, make lifestyle changes to live more simply and spend more justly, and give a collective gift to fight poverty.
If you would like to engage in this transformational study, join us for one hour every Thursday beginning 10/21 from 12-1pm. Sign up here.
The Hebrew College Miller Center for Interreligious Learning is proud to announce that we will be joining IFYC’s National Student Effort to increase access and trust in the vaccine. In partnership with Turn In. Reach Out., We Got Us and The Black Boston Covid-19 Coalition, we will be coordinating and leading the Covid-19 Faith in the Vaccine Student Ambassador Program targeted towards increasing vaccine access and trust in Boston area communities.
Our goal is to compensate community members for investing time and energy into the frontlines work of building the movement towards equity and healing amidst Covid-19. The Faith in the Vaccine initiative incentivizes 28 Students to work as Vaccine Ambassadors, getting paid $15.00 – $17.50 an hour to contribute 100 hours to work on the effort to get folks vaccinated. Our team includes Boston area nonprofits and coalitions like We Got Us and the Black Boston Covid-19 Coalition that are able to lead our cohort from their position at the front lines of this work.
This pandemic has reminded us that no one is safe until everyone is safe. Closing the wound from this pandemic requires that a critical number of us get vaccinated in order to reach herd immunity. We must lift one another up in this journey and encourage one another along this road. The Faith in the Vaccine Student Ambassador program provides supportive structure and scaffolding for Student Ambassadors to make the connections and have the conversations that result in getting more shots into people’s arms.
High-Schoolers, undergraduates, graduate students and recent graduates are all eligible to apply. Members of the local Boston community that are already invested in this type of work as a volunteer are highly encouraged to apply. Please see the attached program overview and flyer and apply by May 17th! Email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions, ideas or potential partnership opportunities.
