Denominational Town Hall on Dismantling Racism
Wednesday, July 1st | 12 noon CDT
Many of us are wrestling with how we can most faithfully understand and respond to the racism that exists in our society. Key to understanding the racism evident today is understanding how racism first took root in our nation and in our churches long ago.
You are invited to a Denominational Town Hall during which church leaders will delve into the history of racism. It will be led by the Council of Bishops, the General Commission on Religion and Race, the General Board of Church and Society and United Methodist Women.
