Global Sisters Report staff writer Dawn Araujo-Hawkins talks about how U.S. congregations of women religious are working to make amends for historically buying into a culture of racism.* Later, NCR Bertelsen interns Maria Benevento and James Dearie provide updates on faith-based efforts to stem the tide of gun violence through initiatives like the Gun Violence Prevention Sabbath and a guide to non-violent holiday gifts for children.
