The work of resisting racism continues. Join Pastor Cathy Stone as we work our way through Me and White Supremacy: A 28-Day Challenge to Combat Racism, Change the World, and Become a Good Ancestor by Layla F. Saad. This book leads readers through a journey of understanding their white privilege and participation in white supremacy, so that they can stop inflicting often unintentional damage on black, indigenous and people of color, and in turn, help other white people do better, too. Following our Lenten series, The Spiritual Work of Resisting Racism, many have asked what they can do to help dismantle white supremacy and where to begin. Layla F. Saad answers, “Begin within. Begin with you and white supremacy.” Together, we will journey through this book with truth, love, and commitment.
