The Presbyterian Mission Agency is committed to building up the church in Christ and bringing God’s love to all humankind in its rich diversity. We pledge to seek, develop and energize diverse leaders who welcome and nurture all people, especially those who are marginalized. And we are determined to galvanize the church to act on issues of racism, violence and poverty as a prophetic witness to Christ’s transforming justice.
Confronting deeply ingrained racist systems and structures in our communities and country takes sensitivity and stamina. Before congregations and worshiping communities can confront the harsh realities of racism, it is helpful to have a good foundation.
One good place to start is by taking the 21-Day Racial Justice Challenge, which is well suited to individuals, churches and mid councils. The challenge invites us to do something every day to raise awareness about the perniciousness of racism and encourage action in response to that awareness.
