In an effort to help Christians demonstrate Christ’s love and vision of unity and justice in Ohio and beyond, the Ohio Council of Churches is asking churches across Ohio to declare Sunday, September 20, 2020 as Anti-Racism Sunday.

Anti-Racism Sunday will be an opportunity for Christians to declare in the clearest and most decisive ways, that racism is a sin, an affront to the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and is a clear and present danger to African Americans, all People of Color, and to all who desire a future of peace and progress for all.  Through worship, learning , and fellowship on Anti-Racism Sunday, participating Christians will draw upon the teachings of Jesus Christ to commit themselves to working with other Christians and people of other faiths to detect, disrupt, and dismantle racism in all its forms.

“Anti-Racism Sunday is open to all churches whether members of the Ohio Council of Churches or not,” says the Rev. Dr. Jack Sullivan, Jr., the Council’s executive director. “It will be a defining moment when we Christians acknowledge that while not everyone who fights racism must be Christian, everyone who is Christian must fight racism. It is the simple yet complex truth behind this effort.”
