As many of us are wondering how we can get involved in the fight for racial equity the following are some suggested actions we can take
1] Visit the Racial Equity Advisory Panel’s site, where you will find a list of ways to get involved. Copy and paste this into your browser: https://racialequity.vermont.
gov/resources“This guide was compiled with particular focus on those who wish to serve as allies and are looking for basic guidance on how to understand and approach this work. It is not exhaustive and not everyone will agree with all of its suggestions, but this is just an on-ramp onto the road towards justice, and what’s important is not where we entered on this road, but that we’re all headed towards a unified goal. Of course, feel free to share.
2] Visit the Vermont Conference website and click on “Black Lives Matter” for statements by our church leaders, resources for examining racism, white privilege and systemic injustice, upcoming protests and vigils, as well as a list of civil rights organizations in Vermont. Type http://www.vtcucc.org into your browser for this website.
43 For a contemplative approach, visit the Center For Action and Contemplation website: cac.org. Click on their podcasts tab, and then the title “Turning to the Mystics”. There is an episode dealing with Social Justice and is a wonderful reflection on the current times.
