“RACISM AND ME” – 21-DAY CHALLENGE

Have you ever made a successful change in your life? If you have, you know that change is hard, it takes time, intention, and attention. Learning more about social justice, particularly issues of power, privilege, supremacy, and leadership is like building any new habit – it involves spending time and paying attention. Sometimes the hardest part is just getting started. The good news is, there’s an abundance of resources just waiting to empower you, to teach you, to help you grow. For 21 days, starting on June 15, we will challenge ourselves to dedicating 21-days to reading, learning, and noticing issues surrounding racism and how it impacts our lives. To find out more about the challenge, visit our website – graceumcbillings.org/anti-racism
