It’s Giving Tuesday. Don’t Just Give Money, Give Knowledge
You can help others become more informed about racial justice.
The audacious goal of Giving Tuesday is to “transform the world through radical generosity.”
This annual day dedicated to giving challenges is all to imagine a better future, find individuals or organizations doing that work, and support them with our sharing.
Through the “Footnotes” newsletter I my goal is to eliminate racism as a barrier to healthy community and belonging.
No one should feel excluded or lesser because if their race or ethnicity. So I write and teach so that we can reduce the harm racism causes.
As you contemplate your giving today, consider not giving just money, but knowledge about how to work for racial justice in our world.
Through your generosity, this newsletter has produced:
“Those Meddling Kids” - a podcast series unmasking the anti-critical race theory crusade
“The Elaine Massacre: A Teach-In”- an online event where I taught about one of the most horrific and hidden race riots of the 20th century
“White Nation Under God”- a podcast series that helps us identify white Christian nationalism and respond to the urgent threat it poses to democracy and the church
Dozens of articles…Such as this one about the Trayvon Martin’s murder and the death of racial reconciliation, this open letter to Grove City College’s leaders, and this one about white evangelicals called “The People Who Don’t Have Any Questions.”
