Anti-Racism Center

To be a disciple is to be anti-racist. Through self and communal reflection and by continuing to gather resources, ideas, and wisdom, we hope this online collection supports our journey on the road of justice and grace.

We partnered with the United Church of Christ Justice and Witness Ministries to bring you this advocacy toolkit. The issues raised here stem from the variety of services CHHSM organizations provide nationwide.
