This ministry team focuses on advocacy and activism for those often excluded from full participation in society and church life. The group has initiated studies and activism focused on justice for those of diverse race or ethnicity, sexual orientation or gender identity, socioeconomic status, and more. AGC's Antiracism subgroup welcomes those interested in learning about actions to promote racial equity, and about supporting Black-led non-profits through gifts of time, talent, and donations.
This group focuses on improving ministry by, for, and with persons who live with disability or functional difference.
Since its inception in 2013, the group has offered support for parents, families, and persons with special needs, has planned church programs, and has hosted two conferences on faith communities and disabilities that drew participants from many congregations. The team seeks to heighten awareness of the theological implications of "being church" with a wide array of developmental and functional differences among us.
