Working to End Racism

In June 2016, our congregation voted to support the Black Lives Matter movement by committing to educate ourselves about and deepening our understanding of white privilege and oppressive systems. We also committed to partner with local organizations to “harness the power of love to combat racism and oppression at all levels within our communities.”
