“Something to Say” conference is here to equip, encourage, and engage families in telling their own stories of racism. In seeing racism when it appears in our churches and our world, we equip voices, recognizing everyone has “something to say.”
Race and Faith’s mission is to challenge racial inequities and advance deeper understanding, fostering meaningful relationships by inviting participants to bring all of who they are into the conversation about racism.
We are a faith-based organization challenging racial inequities and advancing understanding to foster a more just world.
