Sisters of Providence Anti-Racism Team
The purpose of the Anti-Racism Team of the Sisters of Providence is to transform the Congregation into an open, inclusive and anti-racist Congregation. The members of the team work to dismantle systemic racism within the Sisters of Providence, our sponsored institutions, places of ministry and the larger society.

Providence Justice Network
The Providence Justice Network is an informal group of Sisters of Providence and lay companions interested in connecting with each other for a yearly educational gathering to promote social justice. The network was initiated during the 1991 General Chapter of the Sisters of Providence to ensure that justice initiatives would not be lost as the Congregation moved from a provincial to a general administrative structure.
Some topics from previous gatherings include:
• The El Puente Project: Immigration, race and advocacy
• Disarming violence: Strategies for peaceful resistance
• Sustainable development and right relationships
• Faithful dissent in the Church
