The NIC Anti-Racism Task Force is now rolling out Phase I of their online presence—and they are excited about their webpage and Learning Path!

Their work began in late 2019 and now more than 250 lay and clergy across the conference have engaged with the task force through online panel discussions, participated in the Champion Team, and volunteered on various subcommittees, and there’s much more to come!

Stay in touch with the Anti-Racism Task Force by visiting But don’t stop there: you are invited to do more!

Anyone can begin the journey of learning and growing to understand racism better and learn how to be anti-racist. You are also invited to take a journey on their Anti-Racism Awareness and Learning Path by visiting

There are various entry points to start praying, learning, and growing in your understanding of racism and how to be anti-racist. The webpages will continually be updated.

Be sure to register when you start the journey and complete a survey tracking tool at the end of the journey to measure your progress. Join the movement today!
