We are developing a completely new website. Information here is historic. Please see our new website at https://edlarj.org.
The European Descent Lutheran Association for Racial Justice is one of six ethnic associations in the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. It may seem strange for White persons to think of themselves as ethnic. The EDLARJ came into being at the invitation of the other ethnic associations so that all peoples could be represented equally at the Table of Color. If you're White European in heritage, we invite you to partner with us to overcome racism. Register as a Partner here.
