Project Transformation North Texas believes in the equality of all people – as God created all human life, all human life bears God’s image, and all human life is intrinsically sacred and beloved by God. This is why we are committed to the work of racial equity. Throughout the history of this country, racism and White supremacy have been woven into the fabric of our society, which has marginalized the BIPOC (Black, Indigenous and People of Color) community. We acknowledge systemic racism persists today. Project Transformation North Texas has not been immune to the impact of systemic racism.
PTNT has operated from a White perspective that has sought to fix instead of partner. We have perpetuated harm through not fully including BIPOC community voices, past practices that hindered racially and culturally equitable recruitment, and our failure to promote racial equity within our organization. Our impact and intentions were disconnected. We repent. PTNT commits to being a change agent for racial equity in mutual partnership with our communities. We understand that this is a journey within our organization.
Next steps in our journey are as follows:
We envision a world that is rooted in love, pursues the equity of all people, and amplifies God’s call on every life.
