Racial equality & equity
During our 2021 General Chapter, we finalized our Proclamation of Direction through 2026. The direction has four main focuses, including a Justice Focus on Racial Equality and Equity.
We, the Providence Community, choose racial equality and equity as our justice focus for 2021-2026. We commit to partnering with other groups in prayer, education, action and advocacy to:
- Explore the systemic roots of racism in our countries and in our own lives;
- Identify areas of our lives in which we may be complicit with racist attitudes and actions;
- Examine the intersections of racism with other justice issues;
- Make choices to rid ourselves of actions and attitudes that perpetuate racism; and
- Advocate publicly for legislation and policy that promote equality and equity for all.
Join us on our journey to help sustain racial equality and equity.
