As our country marks Juneteenth, Most Rev. Joseph N. Perry, Chairman of the Subcommittee on African American Affairs discusses the significance of the day and the “commitment of religiously grounded people to do better, to be relentless in our pursuit of equality and equity.” As people of faith, we must always recognize and remember that each person is made in the image and likeness of God. May God continue to guide us as we confront the sin of racism and the history of slavery in our country.
