The Next Steps Towards Racial Justice
Almost a year ago, we began our work for intentional anti-racist work by educating ourselves on racism. Pastor Greg and I led two book studies, White Fragility by Robin DiAngelo and How to Be an Antiracist by Ibram X. Kendi. They also joined with other Foothillians and La Mesa churches for a book study called, Dialogues on Race, sponsored by our neighbor, Shepherd of the Valley Lutheran Church. Even though we will continue to educate ourselves on racism and how to be an antiracist activist, we feel it is time to take action. We are looking for people to serve on a Racial Justice Task Force to lead us in the next steps of dismantling racism and creating an equitable church and society.
