The Diocese of Massachusetts is committed to the work of racial justice and reconciliation and has engaged it through programming on numerous levels: bishop-led discussion, self-study, exploration of collusion with oppression, worship, parish initiatives, Resource Days, clergy conferences, and other workshops. Numerous diocesan organizations and affiliates, including an Antiracism Ministry Team, the Mission Institute, Episcopal City Mission and several parish and ecumenical collaborations, have engaged this work in a variety of ways.
At this time our broad range of antiracism efforts throughout the diocese is being reviewed and strengthened as part of the mandate of our diocesan mission strategy. Coordination and accountability are guided by the newly constituted Racial Justice Commission.
