Stated Clerk Calls for Change

In light of recent events, the Stated Clerk of the PC(USA) has issued a video statement about how important it is to fight against racist acts and end systemic racism. For more information see the original article. We cannot wait for another name to attach to these horrific events and we cannot continue to be idle.

Looking for ways to support the fight against racism? 

Here are some suggestions from our Justice Ministry Team

Book  suggestions

FCPC small groups recently read “White Fragility: Why It’s So Hard for White People to Talk About Racism,” by Robin DiAngelo. Member Jenny Lansbury shares: We reflected on the following quote: “Yet our simplistic definition of racism—as intentional acts of racial discrimination committed by immoral individuals—engenders a confidence that we are not part of the problem and that our learning is thus complete.” OUCH! That one was hard. And, yet, I was blessed by the honest responses in our group to DiAngelo’s provocative statement as we all grapple with our place in our country’s racial system.”

SocialJusticeBooks.com promotes multicultural and social justice children’s books, as well as articles and books for educators.
