Racial Justice Sunday – 12 February 2023
Sunday 12th February 2023 is Racial Justice Sunday and churches are encouraged to take some time to mark this specific Sunday.
For 2023 the focus will be remembering Stephen Lawrence.
The 22nd April 2023 marks the 30th anniversary of the racist killing of Black teenager, Stephen Lawrence, in Eltham, southeast London. In many respects, Racial Justice Sunday is one of the many legacies of Stephen Lawrence’s life. As such, in marking Racial Justice Sunday, churches are remembering a young man who in life aspired to be an architect, but whose legacy has seen him become an architect for justice, equality, dignity and unity.
The Racial Justice Sunday Resources are produced by CTBI’s sponsoring churches. They will provide readers with opportunities to pray and take action on racial justice-related matters, not only on that Sunday but throughout the year.. The link for further information and resources is below.
