Purpose & Mission
The Racial Equity Bridge Team (REBT) exists to create a network of people within a predominantly white Cooperative Parish, dedicated to amplifying the voice of BIPOC (black, indigenous, people of color) within and beyond our walls - in all matters that impact our congregations. This includes guiding, educating, coordinating, and providing accountability within our congregations to proactively dismantle racism.
The REBT believes that our Cooperative Parish can embody a vision where racism and all forms of discrimination, bigotry and prejudice will be replaced by an all-inclusive spirit of sisterhood and brotherhood.
Our overarching goal is to be an advocate for all people who have been racially marginalized within our church, and within their communities.
