WATCH LIVE: Steps Towards Racial Justice in the United Church

On this episode of United Church Virtual Penpals we talk anti-Black racism both homegrown and abroad, exploring recent examples like Amy Cooper’s potentially death-dealing weaponization of race, and offering concrete steps towards racial justice for United Church communities.
