Community Breakfasts

Our Community Breakfasts are a way of inviting the larger community into the Divinity School. These Breakfasts provide opportunities for the community to meet VUDS faculty, students, and staff, to hear about topics and projects of current interest, and to consider together important issues confronting us on local, national, and global levels. These Breakfasts provide a setting for getting to know one another and to discover our common interests.

The Truth and Reconciliation Project

Vanderbilt Divinity School, in partnership with Gideon’s Army and various community partnerships, has launched The Truth and Reconciliation Project. The Truth and Reconciliation Project invites individual community agencies, houses of worship, organizations, and individuals to host listening sessions to gather stories of people's experiences of policing in Metro Nashville and from those listening sessions recommend names for a series of four public hearings hosted at Vanderbilt.  In this Community Breakfast, Rasheedat Fetuga, Andrew Krinks, and Amy E. Steele will share highlights from the Driving While Black Report  https://drivingwhileblacknashville.wordpress.com/gideons-army-2/ and lead the community in talking about intersectional injustice and policing, racial profiling, and ultimately, police brutality. Our objective with the Community Breakfast is to facilitate discussion around the DWB report and to engage the community around VDS’s truth and reconciliation process as a methodology for community change.
