Social Justice Groups

In the summer of 2020, in the wake of protests for racial justice responding to the murder of George Floyd in Minneapolis and violence against other people of color, Faith Church began several learning groups to study issues of race and systemic injustice. These groups have read books, listened to podcasts, and watched movies to expand their perspectives.

Now, these social justice learning groups want to provide resources to help anyone else get started on their own learning journey about racial injustice.
