Racial Justice Commitment

As followers of Jesus Christ we are called to work for justice and peace for all God's people.  Through worship, fellowship, education, and faithful ally-ship, burlpres is committed to be an authentic ally for those who suffer from social inequities and exclusion.

The Racial Justice Allies Working Group is a diverse group of brothers and sisters in Christ who are passionate about achieving racial equality and dismantling structural racism in our community.
