Creating a More Just Community

In response to the “Race to Equity” report produced by the Wisconsin Council for Children and Families, the many shootings by police of unarmed African-Americans across the country, and statewide mass incarceration, the Creating a More Just Community working group emerged at Grace Episcopal Church in 2015.

The group’s first efforts involved the organization of a series of lectures held at Grace that same year and the development of partnerships with Madison Jail Ministry and MOSES.

Currently, members of Creating More Just Community is active in advocacy, education, and volunteering with other agencies that offer services to formerly incarcerated people and people experiencing homelessness.

When the Diagnosis is Racism.

Beginning January 20, 2019, Creating More Just Community, under the leadership of Lynn McDonald and Dr. Joanne Pritchett, have sponsored four luncheons and conversations on racism. The series will continue o March 17, and April 28. If you are interested in participating, please email togracechurch@gmail.com
