Racial Justice

The people and churches of the Baltimore-Washington Conference put their faith and love into action in the on-going work of racial justice: the systematic fair treatment of people of all races, resulting in equitable opportunities and outcomes for all. We join together to accomplish this in many ways, including our Multi-Cultural Ministries and our Racial Justice Team.

The United Methodist Church proclaims the value of each person as a unique child of God and commits itself to the healing and wholeness of all persons. The United Methodist Church recognizes that the sin of racism has been destructive to its unity throughout its history and continues to cause painful division and marginalization. (Article V, UMC Constitution)

The Racial Justice Team operates as the conference board of Religion and Race and seeks to both inform the conference progress toward racial justice and equip congregations to better engage. We meet on the third Thursdays of the month and all are welcome.
