I hope you had a blessed Easter weekend. I want to share some exciting events coming up as well as new content that may be of interest.

Register now for the May 13-14, hybrid LA Riots conference titled "Hope from Ashes"
2022 is the thirty year anniversary of the 1992 LA Riots. Rev. Dr. David Latimore (Director, Betsey Stockton Center for Black Church Studies) and I are organizing a hybrid conference on May 13-14, 2022. This conference examines the intersection of race, class, and protest for African American and Asian American communities. Please register for the conference here. The registration is free for virtual attendees and costs $40 for in-person attendees. We are encouraging watch parties in local neighborhoods to facilitate cross-racial conversations and relationships; please email me (david.chao@ptsem.edu) to learn more about hosting a watch party through your church or organization.
Register for the April 22-23, "Prayer as Resistance" Conference
On April 22-23, 2022, my Princeton Seminary colleague, Dr. Bo Karen Lee (Associate Professor of Spiritual Theology and Christian Formation), is hosting a hybrid conference titled “Prayer as Resistance: Contemplative Practices for Liberative Justice.” Here is the conference announcement: “Racialized violence in our nation has wearied souls, and those who care about social justice in our world need encouragement and spiritual practices to sustain our souls. Come and be empowered to consider a variety of ways in which our justice work might be anchored in the depths of God’s love for us and for our world. Register now here. Use this code to receive 30% off (FRIENDDISC).” Please check it out. Registration closes April 21.
