Every person has value as a member of the human family. The suffering caused by racism must be ended if we want to create fair and loving communities. At South Valley we work to end racial discrimination and injustice, starting within ourselves and moving out into the world around us. In the fall of 2022 we created an anti-racism task force to help build competence and capacity for organizational change. This team has sought to engage with the hard questions of what we must do in order to build a radically inclusive community.
We invite people of all ages and backgrounds to share their hopes and dreams for the role that South Valley can play in advancing racial justice in the United States. Some of us have been involved for decades in these efforts and others are still figuring out how they want to be involved. Together we can and will make the necessary shifts to bring about the beloved community.
