Racial Equity

Our congregation values inclusion, justice, and equity for all.

We are committed to learning and doing better in all aspects of who we are.

 

The mission of the Racial Equity Team is as follows:

As members of University Presbyterian Church, we trust the word of God will guide us as we grow in relationships with one another and our neighbors. We acknowledge that as siblings in Christ, we have different histories, experiences, and perspectives that inform our views on race and racism. Our diverse experiences will fuel our work together as we seek to understand, identify, and resist racism. As such, we strive to:

  • Trust our sacred obligation to work toward and sustain racial, cultural, and social justice for all of God’s creation.
  • Continue to choose welcome, foster inclusion, and challenge inequality in all of its manifestations.
  • Galvanize the church to act on issues of racism, violence, and poverty as prophetic witnesses to Christ’s transforming justice.
