A Call to appreciate one another as children of God continually has been repeated at the General Conventions of the Episcopal Church. This is our response.


A call to appreciate one another as children of God continually has been repeated at the General Conventions of the Episcopal Church. In 2009, the General Convention urged every leadership body of the Church to institute programs or sessions on ‘anti-racism’.  Dioceses around the globe instituted anti-racism training and many use Seeing the Face of God in Each Other: The Antiracism Training Manual of the Episcopal Church, a curriculum designed to make us all more aware of how society's racist past still haunts us today. A new framework for creating AntiRacism Programs was approved at General Convention 79 (2018).

In 2013, thanks to a Sowing Seeds of God's Mission Grant, Province 1 leaders from each of our dioceses and from Episcopal Divinity School began collaborating on a new vision to create a wide variety of entry points to address racism.  ​The group decided to focus on providing multiple access points and immersive ways to INCREASE SENSITIVITY, AWARENESS/KNOWLEDGE, and SKILLS [competencies] with respect to one's own and others' multi-cultural contexts.  The task force's goal is to SPUR ACTION to enact the Dream of God which resulted in the development of a type of RESOURCE CENTER with materials, activities, and forums (i.e. threaded discussions and live web conferences) to lend support to you and your efforts.  (See more)
