The Community of Christ Scripture and Race Paper initially was developed in 2006 as a statement from a small ethnically diverse group from a primarily USA context. It was written to speak frankly and honestly of their experiences while recognizing that others around the world also experience racial injustices.
The Diversity and Inclusion Team recognizes that efforts toward inclusion have been made by Community of Christ over the past sixteen years since the paper was written. We also recognize that there is much more work to do toward the goal of understanding and alleviating effects of racism. We support the efforts to work together to become a unified body where all are embraced equally.
