Race and Faith 2018
For the third year, Pres House collaborated with other campus organizations to engage the community on the topic of “Race and Faith.” People were invited to interact with UW freshman artist Claire Embil and her provocative images through their own words and drawings. Local digital artist Kara Gacovino created the Race and Faith 2018 film (above) which synthesizes the interviews, artwork, poetry, reflections, and reactions to Claire’s artwork that address the intersection of race and faith in the UW-Madison community. This multi-evening event gathered community members from multiple faith and race backgrounds together in a hopeful witness of loving our neighbors.

Nonviolence Training Workshops ~ March 16-17th
As Christians we are called to love our enemies while standing up for justice; we are called to be people engaged in non-violent conflict reconciliation. At this workshop, we will learn about Kingian non-violent philosophy and be equipped with practical tools that can be used in relationships, communities, and movements.

Sexuality & Faith ~ Wednesday, March 14th, 6-7 PM
What’s at the intersection of sexuality and faith? Where does faith-based homophobia come from? Where can we make room for LGBTQ+ people in faith communities? What does scripture have to say?
Pres House is an open and affirming community that welcomes the full diversity of God’s people. All backgrounds are welcome.
