Helping support those in need.

Responding To Racism

PRAY: One of the most important things we can do is pray and fast during this time. You can fast on your own or join others. Civil Righteousness is asking people to participate in the Isaiah 58 Fast which ends on Juneteenth – the day when American slavery officially ended in 1865. You can still join in the fast and learn more here.

PRAYERFUL PROTEST: Click the hashtag #KneelForNine to follow on Facebook and learn about upcoming prayerful protests that you can take part in. 9 minutes to honor George Floyd and the many lives that have been taken, 9 minutes to peacefully show and be part of a change to America, 9 minutes to cry together, 9 minutes to pray together.

EDUCATE YOURSELF: Research: Barna’s research on “How U.S. Christians feel about racism — and what they believe it will take to move forward” is currently available for a free digital resource:

Read: Me and White Supremacy by Layla F. SaadWhite Fragility by Robin DiAngeloBe the Bridge by Latasha Morrison I’m Still Here by Austin Brown, Divided by Faith by Michael Emerson & Christian Smith and One Blood by John M. Perkins.

Watch: 13th (Netflix), American Son (Netflix), Dear White People (Netflix), When They See Us (Netflix), Just Mercy (It’s available for free via most services where you would normally pay to rent a film during the month of June: YouTubeiTunesAmazon Prime Video and Google Play.)

LEAN IN: Check in on your black and brown friends, neighbors, and co-workers and see how they’re doing. Pray for them and with them, have honest, open dialogue, and make the decision to speak up and advocate for change.

BE A BRIDGE: Here are some tips on how to build bridge, not walls:
