Our Mission

At Peace Church, our mission is to foster a society where all individuals, regardless of their race, are treated with fairness, respect, and dignity. We firmly believe that racial justice is a critical component of building strong and harmonious communities, and we are dedicated to taking action to address and dismantle systemic racism.

Initiatives for Racial Justice

Through our various initiatives, Peace Church aims to bring awareness, education, and tangible change to the fight against racial inequality. We actively engage with our congregation, community partners, and local organizations to promote racial justice. Our initiatives include:

  • Advocacy and Awareness: We engage in advocacy efforts and initiatives to raise awareness about racial justice issues, both within our faith community and in the wider society. We collaborate with local organizations to organize events, seminars, and workshops that promote dialogue, understanding, and action.
  • Education and Resources: We provide educational resources that explore the history, experiences, and struggles faced by marginalized racial communities. These resources empower individuals to educate themselves, challenge their biases, and actively work towards a more inclusive society.
  • Community Support: We offer support and resources to individuals and families affected by racial injustice. We work closely with local social service agencies, providing assistance, guidance, and advocacy for those in need.
  • Collaborations: We foster collaborations with like-minded organizations and community leaders to implement sustainable changes and address the systemic issues contributing to racial inequality.

Programs for Racial Justice

Peace Church is committed to implementing programs that actively contribute to racial justice in our community. Our programs are designed to facilitate dialogue, education, and collective action. Some of our key programs include:

1. Community Dialogues

Our community dialogues create a safe and inclusive space for individuals from all racial backgrounds to engage in open discussions about race, privilege, and discrimination. Through these dialogues, we aim to foster understanding, empathy, and unity among participants and inspire actionable change in our community.

2. Allyship Training

In our allyship training program, we equip individuals with the knowledge and tools to become effective allies in the fight for racial justice. Through interactive workshops and training sessions, participants learn about the experiences of marginalized racial communities, recognize their own privilege, and develop strategies to actively challenge and dismantle racist systems.

3. Advocacy Campaigns

Our advocacy campaigns focus on creating structural change by advocating for policy reforms, raising awareness about racial disparities, and mobilizing community members to take action. We collaborate with grassroots organizations and policy experts to ensure that our advocacy efforts have a lasting impact in dismantling systemic racism.
