Joint Statement on Systemic Racism – UBE Western Region and Province VIII Black African Ministries

The Episcopal Church expresses that all are welcome. However, it must recognize that many of its members fail to understand that the full participation of Black Americans in some communities continues at a slow pace. Others may, in fact, recognize a problem but choose to remain silent. Some of our members know about systemic racism, race bias, and exclusion and deliberately perpetuate these injustices through the overt and subtle acts. They are never held accountable.
