Racial Justice Ministries at Scarritt Bennett Center seeks to create a world that eradicates white supremacy and its acts of racism. We aim to shift the narrative of racial justice from white allyship to diving deeper into the work of becoming co-conspirators, who dedicate our lives to the work of justice and therefore welcome the struggle.
Racism is not a BIPOC issue. Racism is a human issue. It is primarily the work of white people to dismantle white supremacy in white spaces; it is the work of BIPOC people to heal from racial trauma. Together, the work of the community is to create a new norm, a new society, a new way of being in community that reflects life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness for all. But before we get there, we need reflection, confession, repentance, reparation, and finally reconciliation.
That is the work of a co-conspirator.
IT IS THE WORK OF WHITE PEOPLE
to dismantle white supremacy in white spaces and white communities.
IT IS THE WORK OF BIPOC PEOPLE
to heal from the trauma and culture of racism in BIPOC communities with a generational impact.
