Be the Bridge for Racial Reconciliation, Justice, and Equity

Be the Bridge is Asbury UMC Arnold's racial justice group that meets monthly during the school year. We seek to create "brave spaces" for conversations about race and racism grounded in mutual respect. Our goal is to equip and empower people to resist evil, injustice, and oppression in whatever forms they present themselves. All are invited to join as we learn justice and equity.
