As we continue to commit ourselves as a congregation to be actively anti-racist, confronting white privilege and systemic violence, we want to lift up examples each week of one thing to read, one place to donate, and one concrete action to take. Here are this week's suggestions:
- One thing you can read: “White Debt,” by Eula Biss. This author was also featured recently on the radio show and podcast “On Being” with Krista Tippet. Click here for the article. Click here for the "On Being" podcast.
- One place you can donate: CANDO, the central avenue neighborhood development organization. This neighborhood includes the site where George Floyd was murdered on Memorial Day, and this non-profit organization serves both as steward of that memorial site and community educator for those who wish to engage in acts of allyship and solidarity. Click here for more information or to make a donation.
- One concrete action you can take this week is to write to your representatives on local, state, and national levels about anti-racist legislation currently under consideration, such as the “Justice in Policing Act of 2020.” To locate addresses for your individual representatives click here.
