We will use the following discussion questions to guide our discussion:

  1. Why do we need to know the difference between these two words? Why do you think people confuse these two words so often?
  2. Can you think of other examples of people being treated with equity that led to them being able to succeed? What policies do you think have worked around equity? What haven’t?
  3. Can you think of an example of how treating someone with Equality might not actually be fair or may limit their success?
  4. What does equal education look like? What does equitable education look like? Where do you see each playing out in Philadelphia? 
  5. What other subjects can you see as having different meanings as equal vs. equitable? Voting? Health care? 
  6. Can you think of ways our church or community could work to be more equitable?


Please feel free to bring your own questions, too!
