Violence in Charlottesville: local reaction, resources, and a workshop on racism

Pastor Bill Hennessy was one of the clergy interviewed by local Channel 2 in the wake of the violence in Virginia last weekend. We have included the link here.

As part of an ongoing campaign to address racial injustice, the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) is sharing a wealth of anti-racism resources — including studies, books and training — to equip the greater church to work against racism. We hope you’ll return to this site frequently as links to new resources are added between now and the 223rd General Assembly in June 2018.    http://facing-racism.pcusa.org/
