The KOINONIA School was developed in order to create a place for people of all races and backgrounds to have safe conversations around difficult topics pertaining to race and justice. The school and its programs are an opportunity to explore how our faith (beliefs and values) connect with the work of racial reconciliation.
KOINONIA is a Greek word meaning “fellowship”, “communication”, and “contribution” and the school is designed to equip people in three ways:
- to engage in transformative and self-reflective work around race;
- to engage in constructive dialogue regarding issues of race and justice; and
- to engage in the larger community to promote social justice.
