The mission of the Martin Luther King Action Team is an interfaith group seeking to educate ourselves and our communities on the lower and outer cape about the reality of institutional, cultural and individual racism. Our goal is to build a relationship with each other, our local police and other community leadership, as as well community members, through educational programs, cultural events and citizen advocacy towards becoming a more just and peaceful society.
We seek to support youth whoare or are at risk of becoming homeless or who otherwise experience exclusion from the community. Our goal is to help these young people experience safety, respect and dignity and the opportunity to make their own choices as contributing members of the community to which they belong.
The refugee support team representing member congregations of the Nauset Interfaith Association, is called to assist our congregations in responding to the global refugee crisis. We are guided by a sense of our roots in a nation of immigrants and the witness of our faith traditions.
We will partner with Ascentria Care Alliance and the Concordia Lutheran Church of Worcester to provide physical and social support. We will monitor the political processes in which the refugee crisis is set and engage in education and advocacy.
At the same time we will be aware of our own need for learning and be open to unplanned moments of awakening action and collaboration.
Member congregations meet on a regular basis.
