Perspectives: A conversation with civil rights titans about racism


 

Website page dedicated to

racial justice; tell us what

you're doing

Some United Methodists in Kansas and Nebraska may want to help in the push to bring true racial equality to our country, but they may not know how.

The Great Plains Conference is sharing some tips provided by conference staff and by leaders in our denomination’s general agencies. You’ll find those resources at https://www.greatplainsumc.org/racial-justice.

If your church is involved in some kind of racial-justice ministry, please share what you’re doing with us by sending an email to David Burke at dburke@greatplainsumc.org.
