Now is the right time to expand our understanding of race, racism, and white privilege, and to act with a new and right Spirit in our heart. This is the goal of the United Church of Christ “New and Right Spirit” one-day appeal in New York. Our UCCNY one-day campaign to raise $5,000 will take place on Ash Wednesday (Febuary 14th) 2018. Donations will fund specialized training for persons who will be deployed around New York State to facilitate honest, safe, and yes unsettling conversations that acknowledge our struggles with race, racism, and white privilege. These are conversations for communities, sometimes in a church, sometimes in a school, sometimes in a town hall. Please give generously on Ash Wednesday and be part of the change we long for.
