Mission Center: The Episcopal Church: Advocacy

Diocesan Reporting on Transatlantic Slavery

General Convention Resolution 2006-A123, passed by the 75th General Convention in Columbus, Ohio, directs dioceses to document instances where the diocese was complicit in and benefitted from the institution of Transatlantic Slavery. These actions are complex, and may be difficult to visualize. It may become an ongoing venture as you uncover your history. Several dioceses were asked to share the work they had begun to share with others.

Working together for justice.
