For centuries, the legacy and enduring reality of racism has wrought devastation on communities of color. It is the responsibility of faith communities to speak to these issues with specificity and promote action that will bring about a more equitable society. With this in mind, FPL’s Racial Justice Advocates have three key objectives: LEARN, GIVE, and ACT.
- LEARN: RJA facilitates educational and challenging conversations about racism and its impacts and provides resources for individual and communal learning.
- GIVE: RJA partners with organizations that are doing antiracist work to provide concrete support for these efforts.
- ACT: RJA organizes direct actions (both individual and collective) that promote justice and the dismantling of racist policies in our society.
Our current members are Mary Gaylord, Ken Hurd, Joan Kimball, Mary Helen Lorenz, Barbara Slayter, Mary Jo Veling, and Sarah Klockowski.
