This post from the United Methodist Church’s Commission on Religion and Race includes a worksheet and questions to help those of us who are committed to actively engaging in the work of dismantling racism take the next steps on our journey.
Give it a read and see what you think! Even better? Talk it over with a friend and make a plan to ACT.
The main point is to move from talking about race and racism to living into an anti-racism or racial justice advocate stance. We all have the choice – every day – to decide on which side of racism we will stand. Silence is not an option; neither is standing by and hoping things will get better or “not touch us.” Racism impacts everyone in harmful ways. None of us is immune. We must decide. You, today, right now, are deciding. On which side do you stand?
