Advocate for Change
We recognize that systemic racism is at the root of many forms of injustice, inequality, and violence in our nation and in the Bay Area.
Our prayerful vision for racial justice is that of a Beloved Community, a society based on justice, equality, and love. Systemic racism is at the root of many forms of inequality and violence and we are committed to being an anti-racist community and advocating for racial justice. Grace Cathedral is committed to being an anti-racist community and advocating for racial justice.
End Slavery for Good
Did you know that slavery is still legal in the United States? We are led to believe that the 13th Amendment to the US Constitution abolished slavery and “involuntary servitude,” or forced labor, but a close read of the text shows otherwise. The 13th Amendment — as well as many state constitutions — contains a loophole that makes compulsory labor legal as punishment for a crime.
Our endorsement of a movement means taking the courageous step to advocate with decision-makers in state and federal government at critical junctures, as we did with Proposition 17 in 2020.
Bystanders play an important part in stopping harassment and bullying in both the workplace and social environments. The helpless feeling we experience when we witness or are the recipient of harassing behavior is real, and we have many unhealthy defenses we use to “get out” of the situation.
We offer Bystander training for our staff, youths, and the community throughout the year.
