Simple daily steps to becoming anti-racist
For Black History Month we're sharing resources from our Journey Toward Wholeness initiative to help anyone who wants to become anti-racist. These articles, videos, and stories first appeared in the series "What Can I Do?" which runs in our weekly church newsletter. Each presents an action that can be completed in a few minutes. If you've been thinking "What can I do about racism?", we hope you'll find these actions valuable in your journey toward becoming anti-racist.

Who to contact
Journey Toward Wholeness (JTW) is the Unitarian Universalist Association's initiative, which implements each congregation's anti-racism, anti-oppression commitment on a church-wide basis. At First Church, this group focuses on dismantling racism, eradicating oppression, and on bringing about transformation through increased awareness. The JTW Committee at First Church is composed of People of Color and people of Anglo/European descent, who are of various gender identities and sexual orientations. Anyone may request to serve on this committee, and members are appointed by the church Board of Trustees. Learn more and get in touch on our Journey Toward Wholeness page.
