I’m White, What Do I Do?

On this podcast in the midst of the grief and crisis befalling our country, I try to help fellow white Christians and people of conscience begin to reflect on what might they do and how might they carry themselves from years of experience in racial understanding, dialogue, and work towards justice.

I cover three primary areas 1) materials you might read 2) actions you might take to form more just institutions, especially faith-based ones, and a specific justice link (below) 3) the hardest thing that white Christians need to come to terms with (and it’s not what you think).
