The Race Matters team focuses on the personal “within” work as it relates to issues of racial justice, a top priority for Mayflower members.
We will create spaces where we can understand the spiritual and personal costs of racial injustice. We will increase Mayflower’s engagement with multi-cultural/multi-racial experiences in preparation for becoming a more diverse church community and a more effective ally in our racial justice work.
Have you been soul searching and learning about racism since that fateful day of May 25 when George Floyd was murdered? We highly recommend these two videos from the UCC: preparing for the start of the Chauvin trial and one exploring how churches are doing reparations work.
ISAIAH virtual event on Thursday, March 11, from 6-9pm. Sign up here for Public Safety Strategizing & Caucus Training!
