We are Plymouth people who have come together in response to what we believe is God’s call to understand, address and dismantle racism in ourselves, and our society. We plan to go about this in several ways. We want to:
Provide opportunities and a safe environment at Plymouth where we can openly share thoughts and feelings, and ask questions about racism.
Educate ourselves about the history and continuing presence of personal and systemic racism.
Publicly advocate for racial justice in our society.
To generate this kind of learning and action, we will utilize book discussions, films, speakers, museum exhibits, prayer groups, partnerships with other organizations, and other modes yet to be determined. We are open to ideas and suggestions, and would welcome your participation in any aspect of this work.
