Environmental Racism.
The discussion will examine the core definition of environmental racism and justice by watching a short video and reading some select passages from the National Council of Churches Ecumenical Study Guide on Environmental Racism. As reference materials, here is a deep dive into some of the issues in Albany  and the Ecumenical Study Guide.

INSTRUCTIONS Facebook Live Streaming: we’ll normally start broadcasting about 3 to 5 minutes before the service (so 9:55–9:57) with Trevor’s prelude. Any time after that go the main Facebook page for First Presbyterian Church of Albany. Very close to the top (or maybe just by scrolling down slightly) you’ll see the video with the words “Live now” or something similar. Click on the video and it will open into a larger window and play.  So just stay on the First Pres home page, no need to go into Events or any other sub-page.
 HELPFUL TIP: if you don’t see the livestream on the home page, refresh / reload your browser screen.  Don’t hesitate to call Dwight Cheu at 518.469.1544 if you have any problems.
