A 28 Day Justice Challenge: July 2021

Me and White Supremacy: Combat Racism, Change the World, and Become a Good Ancestor

Jesus calls us to love our neighbor. This commandment, second only to loving God, is at the core of Christ's ministry and message. But, how can we truly love our neighbor if we are consciously and subconsciously affected by racial bias?


The 28-day challenge presented in Me and White Supremacy gives us the framework to be deliberate and honest in our self-reflection around white privilege and to understand its impact on our thoughts and behaviors. Participants will have an opportunity to gather at the end of the challenge to process and discuss their understanding and insights. The challenge will began July 1, but you can still jump in and catch up. You can purchase the book through Amazon or you can contact Jane Wilson.
