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 in August. The next forum focused on the Latino experience, on Sept. 30 and Oct. 7.

The next one, to be held over two nights on Oct. 21 and 28, will focus on the Native American 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.
