BUMC’s Racial Justice Ministry is prayerfully working towards dismantling racism as a way of living out our faith in the liberating power of Christ. We invite all to join us as we Listen, Learn, Act, and Advocate for racial justice.  Ready to get started? Check out the Racial Justice Resources that members of our congregation have found helpful in learning about these complex issues.
