Dismantling Racism Commission
The Commission for Dismantling Racism is made up of lay and clergy members and friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Missouri. We gather on Zoom at 10 a.m. on the first Saturday of each month to plan and organize events, share resources, and discuss current topics. The commission is facilitated by a team of leaders:
- The Rev. Shug Goodlow - Diocesan Missioner for Racial Reconciliation and Justice and Associate Rector at St. Martin's Episcopal Church in Ellisville
- The Rev. Aaron Rogers - Diocesan Ministry Developer for Young Adult Ministry and Clergy-in-Charge at St. Stephen's Episcopal Church, Ferguson
- Harrison Hagan Heil - member of the Episcopal Church of St. Michael & St. George in Clayton
- Kurt Greenbaum - member at-large of the Diocese of Missouri
All are welcome to attend our meetings and be a part of the commission's efforts.
Meetings on the first Saturday of each month @ 10 a.m.
*Please note: Our next meeting will be Saturday, Aug. 5 at St. Stephen's Episcopal Church at 33 N. Clay Ave. in Ferguson.
As people living our baptismal covenant, we see our diocese reconciled to God by challenging racism in ourselves and society.
