Anti-Racist Allyship

Services

Anti-Racist Allyship: Listen. Learn. Act.

Ally: Someone from a non-marginalized group who uses their privilege to advocate for the marginalized group. They transfer the benefits of their privilege to those who lack it.

Trinity’s Anti-Racist Allyship formed out of a small group that met initially on June 1, 2020as a faithful expression of God’s call on people of faith to listen, learn and act to createand support racial equity in response to racial injustice toward BIPOC (Black, Indigenous andPeople of Color) locally and nationally in ongoing acts of violence as well as unequal access tohealthcare, housing, education, healthy food and employment/business owner opportunities.

Watch Pastor Ken Brown in this nationally broadcast news story ( click here) filmed at downtown Denver’s Peaceful Protest May 30, 2020. Please use these resources for listening and learning, watch Trinity’s Facebook page and weekly email for opportunities to be act. Contact Deb Meyer ( dmeyer@trinityumc.org) with questions.This page is always developing so check back for new information. Thank you for being part of the movement.
