TAKE ANTIRACIST ACTION NOW!
You get it. Racism is a problem. The question is, “What do we do about it?” And how do we get kids involved? This book will help you and the young people in your life move beyond mere discussions about racism to taking concrete, direct action to promote racial justice.
WHAT YOU’LL LEARN
Framework for Action
More than a list of of “to-do” items, you’ll learn how to orient your entire life toward racial justice through a simple framework–the A.R.C. Of Racial Justice—to help you consistently interrogate your own actions and maintain a consistent posture of antiracist action.
HISTORICAL BACKGROUND ON RACISM
Never again will our young people have to say what so many adults have said about the history of racism in this country, “I never knew!” Now kids will get an introduction to the truth about how we have treated Black people and other people of color in this country, so we can learn from the past and move toward a better future.
PRINCIPLES FOR FAITH COMMUNITIES
People of faith, specifically Christians, have a large role to play in fighting racism. Churches have often been part of the problem of racism, so they must be part of the solution. The principles of faith also provide a strong foundation for antiracist action.
