Building collaborations is essential to dismantling racism in our community. This week our Session took bold steps to strengthen our relationships with organizations having a meaningful impact in Rochester’s struggle to overcome racist actions and structures.
Session has endorsed both the Racism is a Health Crisis Declaration and Letter Regarding Daniel Prude’s Killing from the Greater Rochester Black Agenda Group.
Session is joining Roc/ACTS, a local affiliate of the National Faith In Action network. Through this affiliation, Third Church joins 21 faith organizations in advocating for improvements in criminal justice, poverty, jobs, and education. Roc/ACTS intentionally brings Black and white parishioners together to work for change.
What you can do:
- Listen to Ernest Krug’s Sermon from Sunday.
- Stay abreast of GRBAG and Roc/ACTS on social media.
- Attend the family-friendly Black Kids Matter event at Harris Whalen Park featuring a drum circle, story time, sign making, and a short march.
