Elimination of Racism Team

During their spring 2013 meeting, the On Earth Peace board of directors and staff participated in an anti-racism training -- the agency’s next step in a commitment to address issues of racism within and outside of the organization. The training was conducted by Crossroads Antiracism Organization and Training, a nonprofit organization providing organizing, training, and consulting to institutions striving to dismantle racism.

The purpose of this initial training was to educate the On Earth Peace board and staff about how racism, power, and privilege has become ingrained within our society and our institutional structures -- including the church. On Earth Peace is now embarking on a plan to transform our organization and community into a fully multiracial and anti-racist institution.

Recognizing that racism affects all institutions and in an effort to live out the mission of the organization, OEP is seeking volunteer members to serve on an institutional Anti-Racism Transformation Team (ARTT) to lead in analyzing and auditing internal policies and procedures that maintain white power and privilege, and in creating a strategy to dismantle oppressive systems inside the organization.
