The full Story
The Racial Reconciliation Collaborative began as an idea of the St. Philip’s Episocopal Church Anti-Racism Ministry, and was shaped through ongoing talks about racial reconciliation and healing with the St. Anne’s Episcopal Church Reconciliation Ministry. The two churches share a long and sometimes painful history, and through many discussions about the possibilities and challenges of racial reconciliation it became apparent that forging greater community connections on this topic is necessary.
To that end, the Racial Reconciliation Collaborative is meant to be a space where faith-based communities and community groups can come together for difficult conversations and mutual support as we work to build the Beloved Community.
Develop a platform for participating faith-based communities and community organizations to facilitate outreach to the greater community to educate and increase understanding about racial reconciliation and social justice issues.
To become a central resource for faith-based communities and community organizations to collaborate in mutually supportive and unifying ways about challenging issues related to race, racial healing, and social justice as we work toward building a beloved community in Annapolis and Anne Arundel County.
