We are excited that you have decided to join us for our upcoming conference on April 1 and 2, 2022.
On the shoulders of its previous, longstanding program in Women and Gender Studies in Church and Society, CRCDS launched a new program in Gender, Sexual, and Racial Justice in the spring semester of 2021. Join us as we create space on April 1-2, 2022 for collective visioning of the program’s future, as well as the future of broader collaborative work to end social violence that targets women, LGBTQ+ persons, survivors of abuse, and communities of color. We offer this as a space for participants to (re)ground and cultivate deeper, accountable relationships with broader networks of academics, activists, and ministers working to make flourishing futures manifest in gendered, sexual, and racial terms.
About the Gender, Sexual, and Racial Justice (GSRJ) Program at Colgate Rochester Crozer Divinity School (CRCDS):
The GSRJ program equips students to use the resources of theological and multireligious education to recognize, analyze, and intervene in forms of violence and oppression that target women, LGBTQ+ persons, and survivors of sexual violence—particularly women, LGBTQ+ persons, and survivors of color. Students learn to draw on both historically significant and contemporary scholarship and activism to assess the specific ways that violence against such persons is manifesting in their own social contexts. GSRJ curricular programs develop students’ capacity to create intellectually rich, concrete plans to interrupt, challenge, and transform the systems giving rise to that violence.
