Our NCC Racial Justice Team has compiled a list of resources to aid each of us in our continued study as Christians and as a people concerned for the safety and well-being of BIPOC folks (black, indigenous, and people of color) in our community and in our world.
We are reminded that there are multiple ways to engage in this work. Not everyone is capable of or desires to join a rally, protest, or march at this time for health and safety concerns in the midst of this pandemic, but we are all capable of learning our entire lives long. We are reminded that we all learn, reconcile, and heal the world around us in our own ways; these resources reflect the multiple individual paths toward justice and healing.
In addition to several congregation-wide conversations that we will begin in the very near future, please explore these resources and discern which of these might spark your interest and be right for you.
