Join the Movement toward Racial Justice was featured as a new campaign initiative during General Synod 33 in 2021. Movements are ignited by people with deep commitments to advancing human and civil rights. Movements are sustained by people of faith rooted in God’s love for humanity. Movements create solidarity across cultures, ethnicities, non-binary gender identities, and intersectional ways of being in the world. Movement makers believe in justice—racial, socioeconomic, health, creation care, reparations, housing, education—for all.
The Join the Movement webinar will feature speakers deeply committed to racial justice, and human and civil rights across the UCC denomination. The capital campaign will assist local churches with grants to sustain the work of racial justice, support new initiatives, develop new churches, and encourage the next generation of young adults to continue the mission and vision of the UCC. Come and listen to the transformational work by committed racial justice Movement Makers.
