In an effort to help people engage and learn about issues of racism and discrimination in the US and the church, we put out a call on our Facebook page for members of our community to share any interesting and illuminating resources they have read, watched, or listened to. Our goal is to learn and start a dialogue.
And our community responded! Below is a list of books, podcasts, documentaries, and other useful resources for educating ourselves and taking action for racial justice:
Books we’ve read together
Organizations we work with:
Denomination Resources: https://facing-racism.pcusa.org/
Donate: Our heart follows where we invest our cash – invest in organizations making a difference. Regular donations are best. See if your employer matches donations.
Discuss: Follow this conversation thread on our Facebook page to keep the conversation going and share your thoughts. Consider joining the Theology on Tap group to discuss big ideas and social issues. Contact Rebecca or Lisa J. if you would like to start a new group at FPCC to explore these issues.
Volunteer: Lend your time and your voice to an excellent cause. Contact any of the organizations listed above to get involved, and consider attending the We Can’t Breathe Virtual Vigil hosted by the San Francisco Presbytery on June 21.
