In the United Methodist Church, our baptismal vow calls us to “resist evil, injustice and oppression in whatever forms they present themselves.”  The sin of racism is one of these evils and injustices. Dismantling racism is part of our discipleship. We invite you to pray about how God is calling you and your church to be engaged in dismantling racism, not for a moment, but for a lifetime. This workshop will give an overview of the basics of antiracism, give practical steps churches can take to become antiracist, and provide real examples of churches that are engaged in the work of antiracism.  Click here to visit our website.

Presenters:  Rev. Jana Hall-Perkins & Rev. Lee Hall Perkins, Conference Antiracism Coordinators
