The Racial Justice Movement and Ministries Task Force (RJMM) of the Mountain Sky Conference and community leaders will host a Spiritual Pilgrimage to the Heart Mountain WWII Japanese American Confinement Site on Saturday, September 18th, 2021. The intent of this trip is to learn both the history and what it means for us today; as community members and as disciples of Jesus Christ, practicing how to be anti-racist and together build beloved community.
 
We will be meeting at the Heart Mountain Interpretive Center at 1 pm MT.
We will be there for about 3 hours.
Our time together will continue at Cody UMC, located at 1405 Beck Ave, Cody, WY 82414, for additional learning, conversation, prayer, communal reflection, and dinner.
