The United Nations has designated March 21 as the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination. This day offers a particular focus on dismantling racism in all its forms, and it has been observed around the world every year since 1966.
The United Church made a commitment to becoming an anti-racist church in 2020, and the church’s anti-racism policy dates back to 2000. It is important to focus on anti-racism for a day, but anti-racism work is important on any and every day. Several resources are available, including the United Church’s brand-new anti-racism action plan, a new blog post, and worship resources on anti-racism. A news item describes 10 ways to work towards anti-racism.
