Newtown Congregational Church - Online Sacred Conversations On Race
The NCC Racial Justice Team invites you to participate in a group conversation to improve personal internal work to remove racial biases and prejudicies and learn the most helpful methods of assisting our BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) sisters and brothers in their quest for racial freedom. Please contact the NCC office and request to be emailed a link to these online discussions.
If you are interested in joining the NCC Racial Justice Team, please specify to be included in the Team planning conversations.
The NCC Global Community Ministry/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 (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 at this time due to health and safety concerns in the midst of this pandemic, 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.

Resources for Youth
Resources for Parents
Books for Adults
Movies for Adults and Older Youth

Until then, may your continued personal journey into racial equality work be a blessed and fruitful one.
