ICCCC is pleased to announce that we just received a grant from the Lesher Foundation that will helps us present more online Anti-Racism trainings in coming months!


We have encouraged all of our congregations to do a 21-Day Racial Equity Challenge.

Some denominations have created their own version of the 21-Day Racial Equity Challenge, include the Presbyterians and Catholics at St. Bonaventure’s that include sources particular to their tradition. 

After the 21 days, we will be hosting an online program called Cultural Mindfulness:  An Interfaith Gathering to Explore Racial Justice, Cultural Competency, and Continue Our Work, below.  We hope to find funding to help us present more great anti-racism teachers online.  More information at

Then we had a presentation on Cultural Competency by Rev. Dr. Dale Weatherspoon, who serves as pastor at the historic Easter Hill United Methodist Church in Richmond, CA.
