RACIAL JUSTICE AT NCC
We believe our faith calls us to stand on the side of the oppressed, to love those facing inequality, and to expand our hearts and minds in understanding what racism is all about. We want to eradicate racism and hope you will join us in the journey.
The NCC Global Community Ministry/Racial Justice Team
Below is a list of resources to aid each of us in our continued study as a people concerned for the safety and well-being of BIPOC (black, indigenous, and people of color) in our community and in our world.
There are multiple ways to engage in this work and not everyone is capable of or desires to join a rally, protest, or march, but we are all capable of learning our entire lives long how to reconcile and heal the world around us in our own ways. The resources below reflect the multiple individual paths toward justice and healing. Please explore them and discern which might spark your interest and be right for you.
