San Jose Panel on Race, Data and Tech
Presbytery of San Jose’s Committee on Representation and Empowerment (CORE) presented a Panel on Race, Data and Technology Saturday August 29, 2020 as part of the Nationwide Presbyterian Week of Action.
Intersections of faith, technology and society are nothing new, going back to the Gutenberg press in the 15th century that delivered God’s word into the hands of laypeople. At the present time, we are experiencing rapid change in technology while the church responds to a deepening cry for justice and racial equality. It is time for the church to examine how technology is not a neutral force; it can be leveraged for good or evil. Here, our panelists as they draw on their faith and help us learn how technology can be a positive tool.
