about

We are the antiracism ministry of the Metropolitan Chicago Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America.


The Team is engaged in an intentional, ongoing effort to provide tools that will assist the Church to fulfill its vision of becoming antiracist.


Our primary focus is on shaping an awareness of how racism manifests itself in our Church and society. We endeavor to assist individuals as they begin to understand and accept a common analysis of institutional racism and its destructive effects on our lives.


It is this common understanding that enables us to jointly identify and confront the systems and structures that continue to perpetuate, support and enable the racial construct in our country.


All of our work is conducted in an atmosphere of mutual respect, caring and safety, and is not based on confrontation, guilt and judgment.


To date, hundreds of people have participated in one our events. Join the conversation!
