A church in North Carolina is taking 12 steps towards helping to improve America’s racial divide.

Every Wednesday, Trinity United Church of Christ in Concord hosts a Racists Anonymous (RA) meeting.

Church minister, Rev. Nathan King told WCNC TV that RA is meant to “deal with the racism within ourselves and to eliminate the racism within ourselves.”

About a dozen people attend the weekly meetings, and are on different steps of racism recovery, according to RA facilitator Carol Stanley.

The group uses a modified version of the 12-step program pioneered by Alcoholics Anonymous, according to a recent Facebook post.
