There is no longer Jew or Greek, there is no longer slave or free, there is no longer male or female; for all of us are one in Christ Jesus.
Galatians 3:26, 28
Westminster is committed to overcoming the sin of racism through education, reconciliation, and action. Inspired by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s declaration that each act of reconciliation is one step closer to a Beloved Community, Westminster provides opportunities for learning, growth, engagement, and advocacy at Westminster and in the Twin Cities.
Racial and economic justice is furthered by:
- Building broader awareness and understanding of racial disparities and injustices
- Making racial equity a core belief of the Westminster community
- Developing the culture needed to achieve racial justice goals at Westminster
- Advocating for public policies and systems necessary to achieve racial goals
- Providing opportunities for learning, growth, and reconciliation for people at all levels of interest and understanding

“Intentionally seeking new knowledge, even enlightenment, prepares us for the next, hard step: making the changes needed to eliminate racism. This is now our charge as Christians.”
