Racial Equity Special Giving

Being an Anti-racist congregation means we are actively working as a people of God, to dismantle racism.

Will you join Apex UMC Family of Faith in building a bridge of anti-racism across our community with a contribution to the Racial Equity Special Giving?

As white people and children of God, we cannot right the wrongs of the past but we can do the soul searching work to begin building a right future.

Only 10.5% of all students enrolled in degree granting colleges and universities were Latinos (compared to 66.1% for Whites.) ~ The Campaign for Educational Equity, Teachers College Columbia University https://files.eric.ed.gov/fulltext/ED524001.pdf

You have an opportunity to make change now!

Your contribution will increase the racial equity work across our community, not just in our church. Giving is one way that you can make a direct anti-racist impact. The goal is $50,000+ 

$35,000 will go to support outreach services for our Hispanic and Latinx neighbors and friends in response to racial disparities in education, food security, health, etc.

$15,000  will support racial equity training, workshops, dialogues, coaching and consulting to strengthen campus leaders and congregation members, equipping us as anti-racist leaders serving both the church and the broader community.

All additional funds raised will be reserved for future racial equity activities.

As people of color and children of God, this is our time to address the impact of racism, and to interrupt experiences of internalized racism, and just as importantly, create space for healing and working for our collective liberation. We can support this work in a multitude of ways, one of those being our dollars.

Let’s work at deepening our understanding of the gap between the stories we've been told and that we tell ourselves and the history we may never have heard. Then bridge that gap by building a community that works toward common solutions for a just world.
