Racism Legislation and Resistance Timeline

open wide our hearts—the enduring call to love

The Intercommunity Peace and Justice Center is pleased to offer, Open Wide Our Hearts—the enduring call to love, a four-session process on the USCCB Pastoral on Racism. Recognizing that “racism still profoundly affects our culture,” our bishops call us to “a genuine conversion of heart, a conversion that will compel change, and the reform of our institutions and society.”

The Study Guide is designed to enable faith communities to understand individual and systemic racism; to listen to the stories of our brothers and sisters and be moved to restore right relationships; to unpack white privilege; and to work to end racism.

The four sessions include:

  • Invitation to Conversion
  • To Do Justice: Live in Right Relationship
  • To love Goodness
  • To Walk Humbly with God
