The Episcopal Women’s Caucus is a justice organization dedicated to Gospel values of equality and liberation and committed to the incarnation of God’s unconditional love.We work to realize this vision by:
- Empowering women and men to challenge oppressive structures in the global community, nation and church;
- Modeling non-hierarchical ways: shared leadership and decision-making, womanist/feminist/mujerista theology and spirituality;
- Giving visibility and respect to women’s perspectives and actions in the work and struggle for justice, peace and the integrity of creation;
- Enabling the church to free itself from racism, sexism, clericalism, heterosexism, ableism, and from teachings and practices that sustain and reinforce power inequities.
