Reflect on what you heard and felt
Brave space will be held for all to respond; no agenda
In light of the centennial commemoration of the Tulsa Race Massacre and God’s ongoing call to love and justice, we seek to open our ears, eyes, minds, and hearts to the atrocities of systemic racial injustice and its consequences; to equip and engage for transformation throughout society.

PC(USA) CHURCHWIDE ANTIRACISM POLICY
Racism is the opposite of what God intends for humanity. It is the rejection of the other, which is entirely contrary to the Word of God incarnate in Jesus Christ. Racism is a lie about our fellow human beings, for it says that some are less than others. Because of our biblical understanding of who God is and what God intends for humanity, the PC(USA) must stand against, speak against and work against racism.
