Social Justice

“We live in a fragmented time when people of faith often avoid conversations about race
and when those who meaningfully confront the challenges often ignore faith.”

– Daniel Hill, Chicago Pastor & author of White Awake

An authentic faith calls us to engage in the tough conversations of our day in light of, not in spite of, our faith. We encourage you to engage the following resources around the topic of racism, social justice and faith. No one resource will be the answer. We pray these resources will foster opportunities for us to listen, learn and grow. We’ve gathered resources for kids, students and adults, for individuals and for families. Some speak from a Christian viewpoint, others do not. Each can be a catalyst for change.
