As a member and friend of The United Church of Canada, we want you to remind you of our denomination's faithful attention to issues of justice and witness in our church systems and in our society. We share with you this joint letter (https://www.united-church.ca/sites/default/files/resources/elcic-acc-ucc_joint_letter-racism.pdf?fbclid=IwAR2cFNdT9H0iaLuKJhFSirsKMoAkvWquSUKfLQ7_mkXMI6zYb9-9fHExd9E) from the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada National Bishop, Anglican Church of Canada Primate and our own UCC Moderator, responding to the current acts of violence and deep harm that are rooted in racism.

We invite you to prayerfully sit with this letter, and to make space in your own areas to hear the stories being shared by those in your community of faith and neighbourhoods who are experiencing racism. We encourage all to access opportunities for learning and growth, and to connect with one another for discussion and reflection. The joint letter on racism also offers action steps, and the internet is full of excellent resources - some that we've shared to the PMRC Facebook page.

Faithfully, PMRC Leadership & Staff
