We are Raising the BAR!

Our BAR (Becoming Anti-Racist) team has done an amazing job over the past 12 months.  The team is made up of dedicated volunteers who have designed curricula which have been used in over 30 zoom sessions, attended by more than 600 people.  They have facilitated series of meetings for CCGB members and friends, individual congregations, high school classes, and the Town of Stratford's C.A.R.E. (Citizens Addressing Racial Equity).  In every session people have learned, grown, and become acutely aware of the racism and inequities that are embedded in our history.  READ more or Click below for full story!
