About Pax Christi Anti-Racism Team

Welcome to the Pax Christi Anti-Racism Team page, where we strive to promote racial equity, social justice, and inclusivity within our community. As part of Peace Church's commitment to fostering a diverse and accepting environment, this team plays a crucial role in addressing and combating racism, both within our congregation and beyond.

Our Mission

At Peace Church, we firmly believe that every individual deserves equal respect, dignity, and rights, regardless of their race, ethnicity, or background. The Pax Christi Anti-Racism Team is dedicated to dismantling systemic racism and advocating for racial justice in our society. Our mission is to create a community where all people feel valued, included, and empowered.

Initiatives and Activities

Racial Awareness Workshops: We organize regular workshops to educate our members and the wider community about the history, impact, and consequences of racism. These workshops aim to deepen understanding, challenge implicit biases, and provide tools for active allyship.

Cultural Celebrations: Through festivals, events, and cultural celebrations, we foster appreciation and recognition of the diverse cultures represented in our community. These celebrations are an opportunity to learn, connect, and support one another.

Advocacy and Outreach: Our team actively engages in advocacy efforts to promote policies and initiatives aimed at reducing racial disparities and promoting justice. Through partnerships with local organizations, we work to raise awareness and advocate for tangible change.

Community Collaboration: We collaborate with other community organizations to address racial inequity collectively. By working together, we aim to amplify our impact and create a supportive network that fosters anti-racist practices across various sectors.

Resources for Education and Support

Reading Lists: We curate comprehensive reading lists that explore various aspects of racism, anti-racism, and racial justice. These resources are available for individuals seeking to deepen their knowledge and understanding.

Online Forums: Engage in meaningful conversations through our online forums, where community members can share experiences, insights, and resources related to anti-racism efforts. This platform encourages dialogue and helps build a supportive community.

Local Partnerships: We collaborate with local organizations and experts to provide training, guidance, and support for individuals and communities seeking to address racism effectively. These partnerships enable us to share best practices and facilitate collective growth.
