New and Right Spirit

New and Right Spirit

“The time is always right to do what is right.”

Martin Luther King, Jr.

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 “New and Right Spirit” one-day appeal to take place on Ash Wednesday (March 1st) 2017.  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.

 Our goal is to raise $10,000 on March 1st  (Ash Wednesday) for the “New and Right Spirit” flash campaign to expand our understanding of race, racism and white privilege in our communities and churches in New York.  Ten Thousand Dollars 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.
