GCORR launches 30 days of anti-racism
The General Commission on Religion and Race is hosting 30 Days of Anti-Racism in September. The campaign encourages participants to engage in an activity every day that helps them become more anti-racist in thought and action.
During the campaign, participants are asked to engage in anti-racist activities and share photos of their progress on social media using #30DaysOfAntiRacism. Activities include participating in intercultural conversations, learning about local elections, supporting a black-owned business, learning about Hispanic Heritage Month, and examining implicit biases. Participants are also encouraged to ask their friends, family, churches and community partners join the campaign.
The project was inspired by Morgan Stafford, a campus minister in Tennessee, who spent the month of June doing at least one thing every day to listen, learn and do, and he tracked his progress on social media. After hearing Stafford’s story, GCORR adapted those efforts into a denominational campaign.
