  • Racial Justice and Equity: We embrace our role in dismantling racism and use the power of our collective voice and actions to fight for racial justice and equity.

  • Dignity: We uphold the dignity of every person, respecting every individual for who they are and what they hope for in their lives. We create an environment where all people feel safe, hopeful, and valued.

  • Collaboration: We believe in the power of collaboration to create meaningful, sustainable change. We embrace our different roles as allies, partners, and leaders in our community.

  • Relationships: We recognize the power of connection and nurture the relationships we develop within RCFL, with residents in the Harrison neighborhood, and with our partner congregations.
