As Rochester continues to struggle with our turn in the racial justice spotlight, we at Asbury First are looking for ways to respond faithfully both at this moment and going forward. Many have asked what we can do right now as individuals and as a congregation to confront the realities of racism in our community.
Please continue to check here for different resources, guides, books, films, and more that can assist you on the journey toward racial justice in Rochester and beyond. Join our Facebook group for more interactive links and events at www.facebook.com/groups/racialjusticegroupasburyfirst.
We have also created a specially designated fund for Racial Equity to which any may contribute. These funds will be distributed to local organizations and community efforts that are committed to ending racism in Rochester. Click here to donate.
