As a community of communions, we are committed to
eradicating racism by examining the factors inhibiting all peoples of
color from experiencing the fullness of leadership and inclusion in
church and society. We encourage member communions to continue to join
the worldwide community in embracing,honoring and celebrating the rich
histories, diverse cultures, vast contributions and gifts for ministry

through prayer, advocacy, and action.
