Interfaith Work

Racial Equality & Social Justice

mlk-quoteCircle Sanctuary is actively engaged in work for racial equality and social justice as part of our interfaith ministries.  Since our founding in 1974, Circle Sanctuary ministers and community members have collaborated with many institutions, communities, and projects to support and manifest equality, liberty, and justice for all. 

Circle Sanctuary recognizes and honors the divine nature and essential dignity of all humans, as detailed in our Inclusiveness Policy:

Circle Sanctuary mourns the death of George Floyd and others, and calls for justice and social change.  Circle Sanctuary supports the work being undertaken under the banner of Black Lives Matter, and continues our multiracial, multicultural and multilingual education and networking endeavors.  Circle Sanctuary is engaged in local, statewide, national, and global collaborations with many religious, spiritual, and freethinker communities, organizations, and initiatives across the USA and around the world to bring about racial equality and racial justice for humans of all colors, races, and ethnicities.
