Scarritt Bennett Center creates space where individuals and groups engage each other to achieve a more just world.
Our Core Values
Empowerment of Women. We enable women to strengthen their voices for self-advocacy, leadership, and action.
Eradication of Racism. We challenge societal assumptions about power, domination, and violence that use race and ethnic differences to create inequality and inequity.
Prophetic Justice. We work to realize a just society and promote activism on behalf of all those who live with injustice.
Radical Hospitality. Grounded in our Christian tradition, we provide a space for cultural expressions and a place at the table where all are included and affirmed.
Sacred Rituals. We value sacred rituals as ways of honoring and celebrating cultural expressions.
Spiritual Enrichment. We are rooted in an understanding that tending to the soul buoys and strengthens individual and communal renewal.
Transformative Education. We build on our legacy of teaching and learning to empower people to be progressive catalysts in their communities.
