A virtual town hall meeting on the mortal sin of racism, sponsored by the Archbishop’s Commission on Racial Healing, will be held on Mon., August 28 at 6:00 p.m. via Zoom.

The town hall, “We Are One Body in Christ: A Virtual Town Hall on the Sin of Racism” will commemorate the 60th Anniversary of the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom organized by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and other civil rights leaders in 1963 to continue the fight for democracy, social justice and civil rights.

Archbishop Pérez launched the Archbishop’s Commission on Racial Healing in 2021. The Commission is composed of 18 people and represents the diversity of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia by race, age, gender, and language. The Commission is composed of clergy as well as lay men and women from city and suburban parishes.

The event is free and open to the public. Those interested in attending the virtual town hall meeting can register by visiting here. A Zoom link will be sent via email the day before.
