MISSION STATEMENT

St. James the Less Racial Reconciliation Task Force is committed to becoming more informed, on behalf of the parish, of the origins and ongoing legacy of racial inequality in our country and in our tradition as the Episcopal Church.  The task force's purpose is to educate our wider parish community on its findings, as well as to devise ways we, as the Church of St. James the Less, can be part of creating a more just church and society.

EDUCATION AND SPIRITUALITY

Stays abreast of books and articles on the topic of racial justice.

HISTORY

Researches parish, diocesan, and community history on racial injustice.

ACTION

Recommends ways to be engaged with the parish and the community.

Since June 2020, over forty members of St. James the Less and additional members of the wider community have been working together for racial justice and equity in our church and the surrounding community. We meet for two hours every other month, and between times are active in projects and with organizations promoting racial justice. We're also exploring our history in an attempt to "set the record straight." Anyone is welcome to join this lively and committed group.
