Mission Center: The Episcopal Church: Advocacy

Violence and Hate

The headlines and evening news stories assault our senses on a daily basis: children watching television in their homes killed by stray bullets, honor students whose lives are snuffed out due to gang violence, murders of family members by other family members. We can become numb to the violence that we hear about on a daily basis. The Episcopal Church condemns violence against anyone. We seek to end violence based on gender, race, color, creed and sexual orientation. We also encourage programs aimed at ending violence in our schools. We urge our dioceses to promote a culture of nonviolence by making educational materials, training and resource people available to our parishes.

Working together for justice.
