Resources for Conversations on Racism

By John Hodges-Batzka

Young leaders in the United Methodist Church are organizing to help provide resources and support for addressing issues of systemic racism in our culture. As a part of this work, these leaders have committed to making available a list of resources to help congregations engage in constructive conversations with young people around the issue of race.

Using a new, searchable database, you can find resources that will help you confront the problem of racism in your own context. Know of a resource that can help spur people to action? You can also submit a resource for consideration in the database.
