Systemic racism and Individual racism both exist in the world and play a crucial part in keeping the status quo of White Supremacy and Privilege. It is for that reason that the 2009 Assembly of the Sierra Pacific Synod approved and put into place the Racial Ethnic Ministry Strategy Discipling Team (REMSDT).
The Discipling Team exists to assist the SPS in addressing the systemic ethnic bias and racial inequity and injustice within our Synod. Every institution needs Racial, Ethnic Advocacy; and REMSDT is the response of our community to dismantle the complex structure of racism. REMSDT through its three working groups provide educational resources via Zoom and on-site workshops, forums, and town hall meetings, and webinars. We assist in developing strategy and strategic goals and tactical actions for addressing and dismantling ethnic bias and racism.
If you are interested in making sure that people of color are represented in every aspect of the church; and that our synod rightly reflects the diversity of our region then the Racial Ethnic Ministry Strategy Discipling Team is here for you.
