PW Synod sponsored, Racial Justice Challenge

What can we do in response to the racism that exists across the U.S. and in our communities? There is a growing awareness among Presbyterians that racism is a crisis and must be addressed.

The PC(USA) and PW in the Synod of Lakes and Prairies are strongly committed to the struggle for racial justice. PW in our Synod believes that it begins with education and dialog.

You are invited to begin to dismantle structural racism through your participation in the “Racial Justice Challenge.” This “Racial Justice Challenge” will help raise awareness about the perniciousness of racism and encourage action in response to that awareness. Through discussions surrounding the PC(USA)’s anti-racism policy, scripture and a variety of other resources, participants may develop an increased understanding of how racism is systemic rather than simply personal.

This study is open to women and men across the synod. It will meet for six-sessions on Mondays, beginning June 29 and ending August 31. There are two sessions offered each time, 1:30-2:30 p.m. (Central Time) or 6:30-7:30 p.m. (Central Time). You do not need to attend all sessions. There is no cost involved, yet you must register to participate via Zoom.

To register, email your name, presbytery, email address, phone number and preference for afternoon or evening participation to Marilyn Stone at
