MASIC presents: Racial Inclusion and The Salvation Army








Jennifer Laurent-Smart speaking at Together 2022
A webinar considering what action we can take to create welcoming and hospitable spaces.

Over the past 18 months, the territory’s Moral and Social Issues Council has hosted a number of online events designed to help Salvationists think ethically and theologically about some of the major issues of our day.  

Join us this November for the latest in the series of ‘MASIC presents…’ as we explore that subject of racial inclusion and The Salvation Army.

We’ll hear from members of the territory’s Racial Inclusion Working Group about their work, from Salvationists about their experiences of racial inclusion and we’ll learn about what action we can take to ensure that our corps and centres are welcoming and hospitable spaces.
