The purpose and mission of the Commission on Religion and Race (CORR) is to work with the Conference boards, agencies, districts and local congregations to promote and develop racial inclusiveness throughout the whole of the church.
CORR’s work is accomplished through monitoring, training, educating and consulting with the Conference boards, agencies, districts and local congregations to provide awareness and opportunities for inclusion and to assist with reviewing practices and policies that may create barriers to the promotion of diversity and inclusiveness.
The Wisconsin Conference CORR is also part of the North Central Jurisdiction CORR (NCJ-CORR), which holds an Annual Learning Event, and the General Commission on Religion & Race (GCORR), the national organization. GCORR’s work helps build the capacity of The United Methodist Church to become contextually relevant and reach more people, younger people, and more diverse people as we make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world. Together, we are working together to open hearts, minds, and doors.
