WHO WE ARE

The DSC Race Coalition was formed by the chairpersons of the DSC Commission on Religion & Race (CORR) and the Ethnic Local Church Concerns Committee (ELCC) in conversation with Bishop Bob Hoshibata at the 2020 Desert Southwest Annual Conference of The United Methodist Church.  An abbreviation for Reflection, Action, Courageous Dialogue, and Engagement, the DSC Race Coalition actively works to promote racially-focused education and dialogue within the DSC, as well as eliminate all forms of racism within the conference. Sitting on the RACE Coalition are Rev. Javier Olivares, Julie O’Neal, Pastor Diamond Pate, Rev. Timote Piukala, Rev. Kimberly Scott, Rev. Khalif Smith, Pastor Christopher Wurpts, with DSC support by Rev. Dan Morley and Billie Fidlin.
