United Against Racism

Anti-Racism Interest Group – Tuesday, November 10th at 6:30 pm

If you are interested in having a conversation about race, racism, and how United Methodists throughout New Mexico and West Texas can faithfully respond to these concerns, you are invited to join us on for a ZOOM meeting on November 10th.  We will be discussing what resources are currently available from a number of United Methodist boards and agencies, what local churches and communities are already doing, and what more can be done to address racism and racial injustices in our communities and our world.

The United Methodist Church recognizes racism as a sin. We commit to challenging unjust systems of power and access.

The “Dismantling Racism: Pressing on to Freedom” initiative is a multi-level effort throughout the United Methodist Church to initiate a sustained and coordinated effort to dismantle racism and promote collective action to work toward racial justice. Click for more
