In the News: Ryan Kusumoto Named as Chair of New Episcopal Church Coalition for Racial Equity and Justice
(Chronicle, February 9, 2023) Presiding Bishop Michael Curry and Julia Ayala Harris, President of the House of Deputies, appointed our very own Ryan Kusumoto to chair the Coalition for Racial Equity and Justice, which was established following the 80th General Convention last July.
In an anouncement from the Episcopal Church Office of Public Affairs, the coalition is described as "an organizing and networking body 'of Episcopal dioceses, parishes, organizations, and individuals dedicated to the work of becoming the Beloved Community.'”
“This is an opportunity for our church to solidify racial justice and equity as a norm,” Kusumoto said. “We will be holding listening sessions so the constituting group has a wide breath of information and understanding to set up the appropriate infrastructure.” READ TEC ANNOUNCEMENT HERE
