SCC Racial Righteousness Resources (a working document**)
Racial righteousness is connected to the heart of God. The scriptures tell us that God loves justice and we see Jesus gravitate toward the people on the margins in his life and ministry. What is important to recognize is that this process is both personal and systemic. We each have a role to play in our personal lives and scope of influence as well as the systems that we are a part of. The resources below are guides to help you identify where you are seeking to make an impact and where you may need to start or continue in your own learning, growth, and development.
The context of Sanctuary Covenant is in a historically Black community, founded by a Black pastor, committed to Black leadership. As a result, these resources largely center Black life, history, and experience. We also understand that racism is not a binary, but a caste system that also oppresses people of Asian, Latino/a, and Indigenous backgrounds. Use this resource guide as a starting point- not as a finish line.
