Anti-Racism and Racial Justice Task Force
The mission of Market Square’s Antiracism & Racial Justice Task Force is to identify and seek to dismantle systemic racism in all areas of congregational life—including worship, education, mission, and governance—both within the church and in the communities it serves.
Define antiracism and racial justice as it relates to Market Square's mission statement: "To proclaim and live the Good News of Jesus Christ by welcoming friend & stranger alike into our diverse and inclusive family of faith regardless of race, class, national origin, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, or worldly condition of any kind as we celebrate our gifts, work for justice, peace, and a sustainable environment, reach out in mission, and witness to God's transforming love."
