The urgency around ending systemic racism has never felt greater, while the church has seemed so ill-equipped to live out God’s vision for racial justice. How are God’s people called to respond? This course provides practical tools for pastors, planters, and church leaders to engage in racial justice at multiple levels: as an individual, in small groups, as a congregation, and as a coalition of churches and community organizations so that both the individual and systemic dimensions of racism are addressed.
