We started off […] [the General Assembly 2020] looking at Europe and we suggested different ways we could look at Europe. But as Connie reminded us […] [in her bible study on day 3], looking and seeing are not the same thing.

For the first of EEA’s monthly online coffee lounges, we invited Yemi Adedeji & Steve Clifford to share. Pastor Yemi is the director of the One People Commission of Evangelical Alliance (EA) UK. Steve Clifford is the former general director of EA UK.
Yemi shared his personal experiences of racism, the constant micro-assaults, the invalidation, the acts which exclude, things that white people may not even be conscious of.
