racial justice

As a church, we confess our complicity and participation in the abhorrent sin of racism that has plagued our nation for over 400 years. We make the claim as people of faith that every person is a beloved child of God and is to be welcomed among us and to be treated with dignity and respect. We seek to respond from our faith perspective, as followers of the teachings of Jesus Christ, teachings that make it imperative that we speak humbly, but boldly, against injustice to God's children. Thus, we seek to engage in programming and study that leads to an experience of true equity for our neighbors of color.

racial equity team

The work for Racial Justice that comes out of the Newman UCC community is led by our Racial Equity Team. The driving forces for their shared work are captured in the Vision and Mission statements below. 

  • We envision a community where our relationships, institutions and social systems provide equitable support and resources for all.

  • The Racial Equity Team of Newman UCC will be a leader within our community exposing, naming and dismantling racism, white supremacy and all forms of prejudice.  This work will exist within the life of this church and beyond to build awareness, solutions, and leadership for racial justice.  


    We define racial justice as equitable treatment, opportunities and outcomes for people of all races and ethnicities.
