Delve deeply into anti-racism work with a 40-day time of learning, reflection, and advocacy!

Each day from Tuesday, October 12 to Friday, November 26 (with the exception of Sundays) there will be a new reflection on anti-racism, as well as activities suitable for adults and children. These activities can be done alone, as a family, or in groups.

During the 40 Days, each day’s content will be available in a format that you can read, download, or print and distribute! Look for this content in the daily stories listed at the bottom of this page. A schedule and a downloadable slide that can be used in your congregation are also available in the Downloads, below.

At the end of the 40 Days, you are invited to continue the learning and engagement in your own ways.

Content is also available in French on EgliseUnie.ca.

Online Events

During the 40 days, there will be different online events where you can gather and engage with the content from that day. Sign up for the newsletter to keep up-to-date with the latest developments!

If you miss an event, you can view recordings on YouTube.
