Racial Justice

Westminster has a long history in engaging social justice issues with work towards reconciliation. With our faith rooted in the local context of Wooster, Ohio, and a vision for a more just world, we are challenged to become more mindful through prayer, worship, conversation, and engagement as we continue the long and arduous task of dismantling racism and white supremacy.

Working with our local partners, especially the Wooster/Orrville NAACP, we have identified the following opportunities to build the “Beloved Community” here in Wooster as we move beyond the removal of legal racism to eradicating it from our lives and community, and thus our nation and world.

 

Uphold the welcome, family atmosphere, and diversity of Wayne County, Ohio and the Wayne County Fair!

This issue deals with the Wayne County Fair Board's continued approval and support of the sale and/or display of the Confederate flag at this great summer event. Read more here.
