The 40 Days of Engagement on Anti-Racism is relaunching this year with brand-new content! The program will run from Tuesday, October 11 to Friday, November 25, 2022. New stories will be offered daily (with the exceptions of Sundays).

"Our congregation discussed the 40 Days program, and so many great, appreciative comments and learnings were shared. Implicit bias was an important learning that many commented on. We appreciate all the contributions and are delighted each day with new insights, prayers, and activities. Thank you!"
