Religious communities play a big role in child placement and adoption. Therefore, it is important to have a conversation in these communities that revolves around race, culture and colonization, and how to truly make adoption “in the best interests of the child.”
“Be the Bridge” to Racial Healing is a non-profit organization and a community of people who share a common goal of creating healthy dialogue about race and racialization in the U.S., with an emphasis on promoting understanding about racial disparities and injustices. The purpose of this forum is to create a safe and positive space for both learners and well-seasoned reconcilers. Our intent is to equip one another to become interracial bridge builders, or ambassadors of racial reconciliation, within our respective communities. The ultimate desire is for the church to become credible witnesses to true biblical oneness.
