Positive change is never easy.
In the current climate, we’re seeing black communities calling for it.
This includes members within The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
A group of members are hosting a letter-writing campaign to ask Church leaders to include anti-racism training in church curriculum.
Melodie Jackson is the woman behind the campaign. She’s a Brigham Young University graduate, served a mission for the church in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, and will begin a PhD program on the Brazilian black Church member experience in the fall.
Jackson is using the hashtag #BlackLivesMattertoChrist online to call on black members to write to Church headquarters. They are invited to share their experiences of being black in the Church, they ask that anti-racism training be incorporated into the Church curriculum and manuals.
