Why are we Focusing on White People?
We recognize that:
Both White people and people of color need to be working toward biblical reconciliation in order for justice and healing to take place.
Because White people have the option to not think about or engage in issues of race, if and when they choose to do so, they often encounter a steep learning curve. People of all races benefit if White people take time to learn and grow before interacting across racial lines.
It is not the responsibility of people of color to teach White people about race. White people should bear this responsibility.
The experiences, capacity, and call of Megan Lietz, founder and director of the RCCI, make her best suited to focus on White evangelicals.
We hope to address issues of race in the context of Christian community more broadly as we develop a multiracial team over time.
