RACIAL DIALOGUE TEAM

PEACEMAKING MINISTRY TEAM

16 DAY RACE EQUITY CHALLENGE

The Racial Dialogue team of Peacemaking has been meeting at a recent  evening meeting, attendees agreed to try Myers Park (Charlotte, NC ) PC’s 21 day race equity challenge. After checking in with each other to share what resonated, the team developed a 16 day Race Equity Challenge. This challenge is inspired by Myers Park’s challenge and the PCUSA’s Matthew 25 racial justice challenge;  it includes local voices and the 224th GA’s Recommendation “Responding to the Sin of Racism and a Call to Action”.  In response to the sin of racism, the team encourages all to do the challenge, either individually or with a partner.
