Following the tumultuous racial tensions in spring and summer of 2020, the Session of Northminster Presyberian Church in Evanston, Illinois formed the Racial Justice Task Force (RJTF) with the goal of our congregation learning and growing together to dismantle racism wherever we encounter it, in all of its forms.

Through activities designed to educate, evaluate, and activate, the RJTF encourages all members and friends of Northminster to join us in taking up the call for racial justice. Join us in the work to interrupt and dismantle white supremacy, and push back against racism. Join us as followers of Jesus Christ to create the Beloved Community, where all are loved for who they are and can live fully free.

Your sisters and brothers in Christ,

The Racial Justice Task Force: Kelly Brest Van Kempen, Jackie Eddy, Nancy Kim Phillips, Erica Mbangamoh, Bruce McBratney, David Rankin, Ian Ross, Nan Snowden, Amber Yancey-Carroll

Staff: Michael Kirby, Jessica Gregory, Ann Ohlrogge Johnson

Please take this 20-minute Congregational Survey on Racial Justice at Northminster.

The Racial Justice Task Force is asking all members and regular visitors of Northminster to participate in this survey.

As a congregation, we must understand what we believe, what we know, and what we need to learn to ensure we are able to recognize and dismantle racism in all its forms, wherever we encounter it.

Help us to better understand the lived experiences and needs of the congregation with respect to Racial Justice, so we can set clear, actionable goals and work toward a world without racism!
