Racial Justice

 
The Rev. Dr.  Donique McIntosh, Racial Justice Team Leader 

 

The mission of the Racial Justice Ministry is to engage every setting of the Southern New England Conference of the United Church of Christ to eradicate racism in our personal, interpersonal, institutional and cultural realms.

 SNEUCC offers Racial Justice Workshops, two-day programs that help participants explore personal experiences, develop shared language, understand how racism operates, recognize examples of white privilege, and plan ways to act against racism. 

New! Faith in Our Future Together Recoverable Grant Program

The vision of this program is to help selected local churches respond effectively to the disruptions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, recognizing that the disruptions may be magnified by systemic racism in congregations of Black people, indigenous people and other people of color.  .
