Racism and refugees with Nathaniel Jennings
Note: There are a few connection glitches in this recording. Hopefully, it won’t affect your enjoyment too much.
Nathaniel, Area Mobiliser for OMF International, has worked alongside Embrace NI “a group of Christians working together to promote positive responses to people seeking asylum, refugees, migrant workers and people from minority ethnic backgrounds in Northern Ireland.”
We’ve come a long way as a society in tackling racism, but sadly it still exists – quite often in “covert” forms. Nathaniel opens up about his own experiences, and what changes he’s seen in his 10 years in Northern Ireland.
As a Christian, Nathaniel’s interested in how the church, in particular, can constructively talk about topics of race, including BLM, immigration and diversity as well as work to eradicate racist attitudes.
