Systemic racism and White privilege aren’t always noticeable to some among us. “Look at the people who represent you in various levels of government, or the people who are in positions of power in various companies and businesses. Is this reflective of the diversity of God’s beautiful creation?”

You can choose from today’s menu of additional activities as an individual, group, or family.
