Never doubt that a group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.

– Margaret Mead

People of all backgrounds across this state, nation, and world are coming together to make their communities places of justice and safety for all. We each want to live in places where everyone’s rights are respected, no matter their race, religion, social class, gender, or sexuality. This work for justice requires both short-term and long-term effort and such commitment is hard. But every religious and spiritual tradition calls us to this work, grounding us in love for each other through our common humanity.

The following list of religious and spiritual resources is just the beginning of what some of our traditions say about racial justice and how we should treat others. Please feel free to send more suggestions to Chaplain Carolyn Fure-Slocum.
