The Episcopal Church’s Becoming Beloved Community grants build capacity in the Church to do the work of racial healing, reconciliation, and justice. The grants may be used for work in these primary fields:
- Telling the truth about our churches and race
- Proclaiming the dream of Beloved Community
- Practicing Jesus’ way of healing and reconciliation
- Repairing the breach in institutions and society
Funds for these grants were allocated by the 79th General Convention of The Episcopal Church in response to GC2018 Resolution D002.
The Episcopal Church Becoming Beloved Community Rapid-Response Grants – Rolling Deadline from June 16 to August 15, 2020
The Presiding Officers' Advisory Group on Becoming Beloved Community Implementation is making funds available for groups working specifically to address the racial disparities laid bare by the coronavirus pandemic and for groups working to respond to racist violence and police reform. Across America, COVID-19 is disproportionately affecting People of Color in terms of health outcomes, access to testing and treatment, safe work environments, and more. At the same time, many recognize the pandemic of ongoing violence directed against black people and other people of color, especially at the hands of law enforcement personnel in communities in the Americas and beyond.
