Come on over to the Porch for more conversation about Race and Right now with Julia Dinsmore. In light of the conviction of Derek Chauvin last week, we’re taking another look at the historical and current realities of policing and race. Without downplaying that these are complicated issues with lots of real people involved, we also acknowledge there are real disparities that exist and our faith calls us not to look away from suffering – wherever it is found.
