Presbyterian Justice Week of Action

August 24 -30

The 224th General Assembly called the PCUSA to action in confronting our complicity with white supremacy, and many Presbyterians are seeking to learn, repent, be transformed.

The whole church is invited to join staff of the national agencies August 24 – 30 to proclaim in word and deed that BLACK LIVES MATTER.

Many events are being held. Information is still being published. Use this link to updates and how you can participate.

21 Day Racial Justice Challenge – PCUSA

What Can we do help dismantle racism?

Confronting deeply ingrained racist systems and structures in our communities and country takes sensitivity and stamina. Before congregations and worshiping communities can confront the harsh realities of racism, it is helpful to have a good foundation.

One good place to start is by taking the 21-Day Racial Justice Challenge, which is well suited to individuals, churches and mid councils. The challenge invites us to do something every day to raise awareness about the perniciousness of racism and encourage action in response to that awareness. The PC(USA) has joined several nonprofits, organizations and school systems in adapting the challenge for our use.
