Working together to overcome racism

“My Church, My Story”

The U.S. Catholic Church at all levels is tackling racism and working toward lasting justice and peace.

At the San Diego Diocese, the Office of Ethnic and Intercultural Communities began hosting a community forum via Zoom, one of the latest diocesan efforts to explore racism in various arenas and to identify long-term solutions that can be implemented locally.

The initial three parts of this forum, called “My Church, My Story: Listen, Dialogue and Action,” were held from August to October. They focused on the African American, Hispanic and Native American experiences in the Church. Find videos of the featured speakers on this page, as well as related ones.

The next two forums are planned for Jan. 27, focusing on the Asian/Pacific Islander experience, and on Feb. 10, on the migrant/refugee experience.

The goal is to provide a platform where Catholics can share their experiences, learn from their fellow faithful through meaningful and honest dialogue, and become agents of change in their parishes and communities.
