Founded, with the support of The Episcopal Church, the Beloved Community Initiative (becomingbelovedcommunity.org). The Beloved Community Initiative supports the work of racial healing in the diocese and its local community in these ways: through educational programs, re-examining local stories, partnering with allies and accomplices; through interfaith gatherings for reflection and spiritual practice, seeking repentance, and rebuilding systems and structures; by providing space for public story-telling, offering training opportunities for all ages, facilitating leadership training, and coordinating pilgrimages; and by building community partnerships, offering space for community groups, creating and offering justice initiatives, and supporting restorative justice initiatives.
