Reconciliación Racial

«¿Buscarás y servirás a Cristo en todas las personas, amando a tu prójimo como a ti mismo? ¿Se esforzarán por la justicia y la paz entre todas las personas y respetarán la dignidad de cada ser humano?

Presiding Bishop Michael Curry offers a message on the church’s work for racial healing

Reconciliation is the spiritual practice of seeking loving, liberating and life-giving relationship with God and one another, and striving to heal and transform injustice and brokenness in ourselves, our communities, institutions, and society.

The Episcopal Church Becoming Beloved Community Rapid-Response Grants
Rolling Deadline from June 19 to August 15, 2020

The Presiding Officers’ Advisory Group on Becoming Beloved Community Implementation is making funds available for groups working specifically to address the racial disparities laid bare by the coronavirus pandemic and for groups working to respond to racist violence and police reform. Across America, COVID-19 is disproportionately affecting People of Color in terms of health outcomes, access to testing and treatment, safe work environments, and more. At the same time, many recognize the pandemic of ongoing violence directed against black people and other people of color, especially at the hands of law enforcement personnel in communities in the Americas and beyond. More information and applications here.
