PJICIn its July update, the Office of Peace Justice and Integrity of Creation shares the Declaration of Responsibility in the Struggle for Racial Justice.

The Declaration of Responsibility for Systemic Racism, drafted by Faith in Action, is the product of a national call with nearly 800 faith leaders including Cardinal Tobin of Newark and Bishop Stowe of Lexington, Kentucky. It calls on faith leaders to atone for the sin of racism and discrimination, and act to transform structures influenced by systemic racism.

This initiative springs from a challenge from black clergy and organizers to do deep work in white spaces to uproot white supremacy and biases against people of color.
