Equality and Justice

The Committee for Equality and Justice

The Christ Lutheran Church Equality and Justice Committee seeks to make real the promise of our congregation’s mission to be an open and affirming family of faith, specifically responding to the needs of a racially and ethnically diverse world.

Through conversation, programming, and community engagement, we aim to:

  1. increase awareness of the experiences of people of color in and around the Athens community;
  2. examine the congregation’s and the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America’s role in promoting diversity and inclusion;
  3. increase our love and ability to care for one another; and
  4. provide the means to intervene when we witness injustice in our community.
