The Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), A Corporation turned to one of its own, the Rev. Mark Koenig, to tell its story to the 225th General Assembly.
The Racial Equity Advocacy Committee submits this letter as a loving and justice-oriented response to our colleagues in ministry who call upon REAC to respond to A Message from the Stated Clerk dated January 22 by the Rev.

It is with heavy hearts and concern that the National Hispanic/Latino Presbyterian Caucus of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) denounces the recent acts of violence against Asian American Pacific Islanders (AAPI) sisters and brothers, specially, last week’s March 17, 2021 murder of six Asian and Asian American women.
Asian Americans across the country have found themselves victims of violent crimes for no apparent reason other than their ethnicity. Tuesday’s killing of eight people in Atlanta, including six Asian women, four of whom were South Koreans, has brought about offers of support among Presbyterians — and cries for hate and violence to stop.
The Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.)’s Racial Equity Advocacy Committee wrote a letter Thursday denouncing Tuesday’s killings in Atlanta and in Cherokee County north of Atlanta, and the National Black Presbyterian Caucus followed that up with its own letter.
