United Methodists from around the world will gather to lament for the racism in our midst. We will also reflect on Psalm 22, have a time of Communion and hear God’s call to join in the work of dismantling racism and pressing on to freedom for all.

Together, we must pray, connect, show up and act.

“Dismantling Racism: Pressing on to Freedom” is a multi-level initiative throughout the church to implement a sustained and coordinated effort to dismantle racism and promote collective action to work toward racial justice. Actions will continue at least through the General Conference meeting in 2021.
