A Message from the
St. Thomas Chapter of the Order of the Daughters of the King

“Our long-term commitment to racial justice and reconciliation is embedded in our identity as baptized followers of Jesus. We will still be doing it when the news cameras are long gone.” Excerpt from a word to the Church from Presiding Bishop Michael Curry, May 30, 2020

In keeping with Presiding Bishop Curry’s sentiments, the St. Thomas Chapter formed the Anti-Racism Initiative Committee (ARIC) in September of 2020 to actively pursue the goal of promoting racial justice, reconciliation, and healing, consistent with our Baptismal Covenant and the Motto of the Order of the Daughters of the King. In connection with this effort, ARIC delivers brief educational programs to the chapter about the language of and best practices for advancing anti-racism efforts. The group also created and continues to use some supporting documents, including a Prayer for Racial Equity and Healing, a Glossary of Anti-Racist/Bias Terms, and a list of Suggested Resources that Support Anti-Racism Efforts. We encourage you, as faithful Christians, to review these resources at your leisure. For more information about ARIC’s efforts, feel free to contact the chairperson, Karen Jackson Vaughn, at dok@aecst.org
