Systems of racial privilege and disadvantage exist globally. Yet we know all persons are created in God’s image (Genesis 1:27) and without distinction (Galatians 3:28). All are born free and equal in dignity and rights and with the potential to contribute to the development and well-being of their societies (UN GA).
As a Christian relief and development organization, speaking up against poverty and injustice is at the heart of our work. While our primary programmatic activities are globally focused, we recognize that the mindsets and powers that perpetuate injustice are the same that also wreak havoc in our nation. Therefore, through both programs and advocacy we call people to stand on the side of love and biblical justice. And we take responsibility for advancing racial justice within our organization.
