Diversity & Anti-Racism

Our Vision

  • Honoring God, World Renew reflects God’s diverse body with anti-racist, transparent institutions that are accountable to the communities we serve for how we worship together, for our economic lives, and for reshaping our anti-racist cultural identities.
     

Who Are we?

  • We are an inclusive, anti-racist, multicultural Christian organization that recognizes the destructive effects of racism on all members of our community. 

  • We commit to restoring full participation and shared power of the entire community and being accountable to the people and communities we serve.
     

We Are a Community of Learners

  • We reject all forms of bias whether it on the basis of race, ethnicity, age, gender, marital status etc.

  • We are dedicated to sharing an anti-racist, anti-bias biblical perspective.

  • We implement anti-racist, anti-bias structures, policies, and practices that maximize the potential of our constituents.
     

We Are a Changing Community

  • We imagine a future without systemic racism and without bias so that all members of our community are empowered to use their creativity in an inclusive, anti-racist, and anti-oppressive environment.
