Our Mission

Dismantling racism through love in action. Creating justice with dignity and respect.

The Beloved Community Initiative for Racial Justice, Healing, and Reconciliation in Iowa aims to “grow a community of reconcilers, justice-makers, and healers” (Becoming, 5).

We organize our work in four major areas: telling the truth,  proclaiming the dream of Beloved Community, practicing the Way of Love, and repairing the breach in society and institutions.
