Justice Conference Founder to Speak on White Privilege

Written by Ann Byle on . Posted in Local

kenKen Wytsma, founder of The Justice Conference and author of the new book "The Myth of Equality: Uncovering the Roots of Injustice and Privilege," will speak at Baker Book House on Wednesday, June 7.

The event, titled "Privilege is Real," is free, though tickets are required. Copies of his new book will be available for purchase at the store.

"We're so pleased to have Ken Wytsma in the store to talk about these important issues," said Darron Schroeder, assistant manager. "These are topics than need to be addressed, especially by Christians."

Wystma has said that privilege is a deeply religious subject, much more than a just topic for discussion. He has put his words into action via The Justice Conference, which has reached over 30,000 worldwide; as pastor of global ministries at Antioch Church; and as president of Kilns College. He and his family live in Bend, Oregon.

He is also author of "Create Vs. Copy: Embrace Change. Ignite Creativity. Break Through with Imagination," "The Grand Paradox: The Messiness of Life, the Mystery of God and the Necessity of Faith," and "Pursing Justice: The Call to Live & Die for Bigger Things."

"We're excited to be part of the conversation about justice, privilege and how they intersect with our Christian faith," said Schroeder.
