Last month, FGC’s Vital Friends eNewsletter reported the winter Executive Committee approval of Friends to serve on the Implementation Group.
What’s next for FGC’s Institutional Assessment on Systemic Racism?
October Report from the Institutional Assessment on Systemic Racism Task Force: Recommendations & FGC Central Committee 2018 Discernment
Two years after Friends General Conference’s governing body approved the initiation of an institutional assessment on systemic racism, a full report and summary with recommendations are now available.
This summer, Vanessa Julye, the Coordinator of FGC’s Ministry on Racism program, delivered an honest, inspirational keynote address to Friends at North Pacific Yearly Meeting.
The next phase of our work has begun: analyzing and summarizing data, crafting recommendations, and planning our presentation for the fall Central Committee.
The FGC Institutional Assessment on Racism survey completed on July 31, 2018 – with 1,168 respondents!
The IAR enjoyed considerable exposure during July at the 2018 Gathering and NYYM summer session.
We want to draw your attention to the fact that the IAR survey will remain open through the end of the Gathering.
The Institutional Assessment (IA) Survey of FGC Friends aims to identify evidence of institutional racism that may have crept into FGC’s practices and procedures.
The Institutional Assessment Task Force has created a timeline of major milestones from now until October.
The Institutional Assessment Task Force continues to lay the groundwork for gathering evidence of the gap between our perception and our reality of systemic racism within Friends General Conference.
Our faith as Friends calls us to respect and nurture that of God in everyone. That includes advocating for an end to white supremacy and racism.
