Our Covenant

Allies for Racial Equity disrupts oppression, uproots white supremacy, and plants seeds of justice. This is a ministry of faith which leads all who participate to spiritual growth and wholeness. We honor each other's humanity and capacity for growth by offering ourselves and each other grace and accountability.

I commit to

  • Challenge my assumptions
  • Speak honestly and kindly
  • Prioritize relationship
  • Choose curiosity over defensiveness
  • Own and work on my shit
  • Offer and receive feedback as a gift
  • Monitor my needs and practice self-care

We commit to

  • Make relationships work because failure to do so will compromise our ability to fulfill our mission
  • Be honest about our history and clear about our context
  • Communicate directly, specifically, and in a timely manner
  • Create and sustain systems and practices that enforce self-care
  • Privilege impact over intention
  • Provide pathways for full participation
  • Honor individual privacy and collective learning: share others’ stories only with explicit consent
  • Build assessment, evaluation, and improvement into our practices and processes
  • Review our covenant no less than annually
