Open and Affirming–We invite anyone, regardless of race, ancestry, age, ability, gender identity, sexual orientation, economic circumstance, marital standing, family structure, faith background, culture, physical or mental prowess or limitation, to full participation in the common life of the church.
Racial Equality–Racial Justice is the systemic fair treatment of all people that results in equal opportunities and outcome for everyone.
Women’s Rights and Advocacy–Poverty, racism, and anti-female religious and cultural oppression prevent women from being able to make authentic choices about their own lives and bodies. Our moral goal is to struggle against barriers to equality for all women. We at First Congregational UCC Charlotte are committed to advocacy and justice issues, and seek to treat all women as equal partners in the work of the church.
International Women’s Day 2021
2021 campaign theme: #ChooseToChallenge
A challenged world is an alert world. Individually, we’re all responsible for our own thoughts and actions – all day, every day.
We can all choose to challenge and call out gender bias and inequality. We can all choose to seek out and celebrate women’s achievements. Collectively, we can all help create an inclusive world.
From challenge comes change, so let’s all choose to challenge.
