Resources

Each week, we provide resources to help transform ourselves, our church and our community through education, advocacy and action.

Week 1

Week 2

Watch 

a documentary about work being done in Virginia to recover lost history. This provides a current example of why it is vital to take time to understand the inequities in how history is recorded. If you find this work compelling, Bull Run Regional Park has a similar project. They will have opportunities to serve in warmer weather.

Engage 

via a webinar offered by the Library of Congress. Learn about Black barbers and how to access reliable resources that tell the history of black business. Registration is required.

Coming Soon 

Share this newsletter with family, friends and neighbors. We invite all to join in this work for racial reconciliation. Our vision is to transform ourselves, our church and our community through education, advocacy and action.
