Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Princeton, Racial Justice Task Force (RJTF)

The RJTF promotes racial justice and multiculturalism and acts to eliminate oppression and racism within ourselves, our congregation and in our communities. The range of work includes a congregational statement to denounce racism and pledge to work to eliminate racism; to congregation wide education; and to partnerships with groups that are involved in anti-racism work in our local communities and state.
