Engaging in creative ways and means of bringing all people together in the pursuit of racial justice, healing, and unity.
A Lovingly Distinctive Approach to the Elimination of Racism:
Fostering a Moral and Spiritual Change in Individual Hearts.

PRJ is engaged in creative ways and means of bringing all people together in the pursuit of racial justice, healing, and unity. We believe that in “every century a particular and central theme is, in accordance with the requirements of that century, confirmed by God. In this illumined age that which is confirmed is the oneness of the world of humanity. Every soul who serveth this oneness will undoubtedly be assisted and confirmed”. (‘Abdu’l-Bahá).

So many of the conversations around the question of race are contentious and confrontational. Perpetuating the blame-game is not only fruitless but often counter-productive.

PRJ’s virtual spaces, first and foremost, are safe, respectful places where groups of diverse peoples bring our unique talents and capacities, raising up a growing community of individuals, each striving to contribute to the realization of oneness which requires the elimination of all forms of prejudice and the establishment of justice for all.
