Members of the Presiding Bishop’s staff have curated this list of resources for racial justice and reconciliation. This is by no means exhaustive; however, we are aware that many leaders are hoping to deepen their learning, and these resources should help you to move in the right direction.

Becoming Beloved Community: Vision, Plan and Resources
As the Episcopal branch of the Jesus Movement, we dream and work to foster Beloved Communities where all people may experience dignity and abundant life and see themselves and others as beloved children of God. The Becoming Beloved Community Vision Document and accompanying resources help us to understand and take up the long-term commitments necessary to form loving, liberating and life-giving relationships with each other. Together, we are growing as reconcilers, justice-makers, and healers in the name of Christ.
