Racial Justice

Faith Commons affirms the God-given equality of all people, no matter their race, ethnicity or creed. We are committed to doing the hard work of self-examination to uproot the causes of racial injustice and contribute to making our communities more equitable.

The summer of 2020 has been a season of reckoning, and Faith Commons mourns the loss of black lives that have been disproportionately victimized by police brutality and COVID-19 alike. We support changes in municipal budgets for police departments that will point toward a new strategy in policing that is not based on fear and violence.

Racial equality is, in many ways, closely connected to religious equality in America. American Muslims have, especially since 9/11, been ostracized and victimized. Anti-Semitism is on the rise, especially since the political rhetoric of hate and fear has become socially acceptable.

Faith Commons seeks to model inter-religious and inter-racial friendships that respect each other’s differences and feel each other’s pain. We work with and for each other for a more just society.
