The Junction is Committed to Anti-Racism Work
The Junction is founded on the notion of community, and right now our community is grieving and people are angry. Racism and white supremacy have plagued our history for centuries and continue to do so in the form of calculated acts of hate towards our sisters and brothers of color and through deep-seeded systemic policies and practices.
“Racism is the opposite of what God intends for humanity. It is the rejection of the other, which is entirely contrary to the Word of God incarnate in Jesus Christ. It is a form of idolatry that elevates human-made hierarchies of value over divinely-given free grace. Through colonization and slavery, the United States of America helped to create and embrace a system of valuing and devaluing people based on skin color and ethnic identity. The name for this system is white supremacy. This system deliberately subjugated groups of people for the purpose of material, political, and social advantage. Racism is the continuing legacy of white supremacy. Racism is a lie about our fellow human beings, for it says that some are less than others. It is also a lie about God, for it falsely claims that God favors parts of creation over the entirety of creation.”

The Junction is committed to anti-racism work. We are committed to education, activism, and active listening as means to use this platform to combat racism and injustice and to broaden our understanding of equality.
We welcome all to the table who wish to join us in this work.
The Junction is a community committed to bringing people together in the spirit of radical hospitality through good food, cold beer, and genuine relationship to grow as individuals and serve our communities.We meet together to get to know new people, share our stories, and serve one another.
We are a new community with big dreams. We have plans to open our own space where anyone can enjoy a hot meal and cold drink around the table in fellowship with their community.
