EmbRace Justice

Our mission statementThe St. Elizabeth EmbRace Justice Ministry feels called to open our ears, hearts, and minds to walk humbly with our brothers and sisters of color in living out our baptismal commitment as disciples of Jesus Christ. Our mission is to address racism through education, self-awareness, understanding, solidarity, and advocacy for racial justice.

We periodically organize other events and opportunities for involvement. We will post these in the bulletin and notify our group by e-mail. If interested in participating in the EmbRace Justice Ministry, or if you have ideas to share as to how we as a Parish can become more involved in addressing racial justice issues, please ask to be added to our e-mail group by emailing Dcn. Mike McLean.

What's Happening in Our Ministry


Walk for Unity

Saturday, June 8, 2024

8:30a – 12:00p

Begins at the corner of Troost and Truman Rd in the Manual High School field. Parking across Truman.

What better way to spend a beautiful June morning than taking an easy walk and meeting people that "don’t look like you”! The mission of Unite KC is building bridges across Troost. This Walk for Unity (the 5th annual) is their most popular and largest family-friendly event and is open to all.

The theme is Journey Together, and we are excited for the best year yet! 

The Walk will have the same route as previous years, an easy 3/4 mile, arriving on the Celebration Lawn (behind the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum) for live music, funnel cakes, activities and a fun twist to giving away prizes.  Questions? Call or text Doug Kinney: 816-582-9200.
