We commit ourselves to the recognition, dismantling, and elimination of Anti-Black and other forms of racism in our secular institutions, in our Church, and in ourselves, and to work for the full inclusion, participation and belongingness of Black, Indigenous and other racialized people in all sectors of our common life.
Thank you to another of our congregants who has shared the following resources to help us with our education and understanding of systemic racism (click the links for more info on each resource).
– The Skin We’re In
– Why I am no longer talking to white people about race
– 21 things you might not know about the Indian Act
We invite you to share materials that you may have found helpful on this topic or any personal experiences that you think your fellow parishioners might benefit from. Feel free to reach out to me if you have anything.
