Statement of Solidarity
The Absalom Jones Center for Racial Healing acknowledges and pays respect to past and present tribal members of the Indigenous nations who were forcibly expelled from the lands Georgia now occupies: the Muscogee (Creek) and the Ani’yun’wiya (Cherokee). Standing in solidarity with all who are oppressed, we deplore the hatred and violence shown historically and in the present to Indigenous people, African Americans, African Caribbeans, Asian and Asian Americans, LatinX, Pacific Islanders, and all other oppressed persons. We will continually seek to dismantle the racism that threatens us all as human beings.
WELCOME TO OUR BRAVE SPACE.
Welcome from Dr. Catherine Meeks and Bishop Robert Wright
Our Mission is to provide tools and experiences that allow faith communities – and the larger community of individuals – to engage in dismantling racism through education, prayer, dialogue, pilgrimage,
and spiritual formation.

Our Virtual Resource Center
Our virtual library is replete with resources to educate, inspire, and prepare you to advance racial healing. We have a high regard for each group listed and their particular strengths. Therefore, our tools and resources are organized in a manner to affirm, honor, and take care not to dilute their individual cultural distinctiveness and diversity.
