The first step in seeking racial reconciliation and doing justice is education. Our Family Ministries Team has compiled the resources we have found to be most helpful in educating ourselves and our kids on the many facets of racial equity, diversity, and inclusion. In this virtual library you will find books, podcasts, songs, movies, and videos that we hope will equip you to lean in. Not all of these resources are appropriate for all ages, so please exercise your own discretion as you pass these onto your kids.
The views expressed in these resources do not necessarily reflect the views of LCPC.
Not all these resources are appropriate for all ages. Parent discretion advised.


The Presbyterian Mission Agency has invited us to take the 21 Day Challenge. The challenge invites us to do something every day to raise awareness about the perniciousness of racism and encourage action in response to that awareness.


The RRJM is led by a team of volunteers and staff dedicated to the work of justice at our church. This team offers regular opportunities to learn and be in dialogue with others around issues of equity, diversity, and inclusion.
