WELCOME TO OUR BRAVE SPACE.

The Absalom Jones Episcopal Center for Racial Healing:
A Ministry of the Diocese of Atlanta and the Episcopal Church

"Our work continues"

"We’re still doing the work that Jesus gave us to do:  how to love across difference, how to respect the dignity of every human being."

       - Bishop Rob Wright   
 

A Welcome from 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 Goals 

  • Establish and Promote a National Model for Dismantling Racism

  • Inspire faith and lay leaders to lead racial healing and reconciliation

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.
