The Women of Color Consultation Task Force Report - Hearing and Singing New Songs to God: Shunning Old Discords and Sharing New Harmonies
The Women of Color Consultation Task Force Report was approved at 218th General Assembly.
Some highlights of the report include:
A call for transformation of the church, focusing on the intersections of gender, race and class.
Direct the General Assembly Mission Council, in consultation with Advocacy Committee for Racial Ethnic Concerns and Advocacy Committee for Women’s Concerns, to expand on the basic antiracism training to include modules on the intersectionality of race, gender and class and provide focused training on internalized oppression and privilege.
Seek inclusivity with equity: moving beyond tokenism in the participation of women of color of all ages to valuing and embracing the gifts they bring to the life of the whole church.
Adopting an understanding of shared power as a fundamental element of community.
