Outreach & Advocacy

Trinity Cares Reflection and Action

Third Thursday of the month, 6:30–7:30pm
January, March, May, July, September

In response to racial violence and turmoil in summer 2020, Trinity Cares members gathered to share their stories, reflect together, and discuss ways to take action together for social justice. In August and September, the group decided to focus their efforts and form three specialized groups (see below). The large group continues to meet to share and reflect on the work being done and the lessons being learned in each group. 


After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meetings.

Heads & Hearts Together: Police-Community Dialogue

First Thursday of every month, 6:30–7:30pm

This affinity group is focused on joining in the effort to reimagine policing policy in New York City into one which holds close our Trinity core values of social justice, compassion, and inclusiveness.  We are interested in where we can be of most service in this process of reform which may include:

  • advocating for specific policy changes
  • participating in local community meetings organized by NYPD and local government officials
  • partnering with local organizations focused on reimagining policy policy, and 
  • fostering constructive dialogue and partnership between community members and the NYPD. 


Racial Justice and Education

Second Monday of every month, 6:30–7:30pm

The Education group meets for reflection, sharing and to explore ways to make a positive impact on racial injustice in the area of child and adult education. We will review resources, plan projects and search for ways to support existing work. 


Transformative Truth Telling

Second Thursday of every month, 6:30–7:30pm

The Transformative Truth Telling affinity group seeks to learn the history of Trinity Church and to share it in a manner that is enlightening, inclusive and compassionate, leading participants to a transformative experience that connects us to the past, roots us in the present and steers us toward the future.


Trinity Cares is sponsored by Trinity’s Department of Pastoral Care and Community.
