Grounded in our baptismal promise to resist all evil, and committed to denouncing the sin of racism, Pax Christi USA has made a preferential option to transform itself into an anti-racist, multicultural movement for peace with justice.
This transformation can only be accomplished through intentional relationships and full participation across racial and cultural communities in our work by:
- Organizational structures that foster mutual respect and dialogue and which create accountability to people of color
- Policies which affirm the dignity and utilize the talents of every person
- Practices which hold multiple and at times conflicting perspectives in creative tension
- Decision-making processes which depend on and incorporate the racial and multi-cultural identity that is the Church, the Body of Christ.
We have chosen this identity in order to confront the persistent, destructive personal and systemic racism that perpetuates violence in our communities and results in deep spiritual and social brokenness. We are confident that a spirituality of non-violent anti-racism makes our transformative vision a reality.
