Let's Talk About Racism

Consistent with its scriptural foundations, The Salvation Army stands against racism in all forms. Our International Positional Statement on Racism makes that clear.

Elements of the recently issued “Let’s Talk About Racism” guide led some to believe we think they should apologize for the color of their skin, or that The Salvation Army may have abandoned its Biblical beliefs for another philosophy or ideology. That was never our intention, so the guide has been removed for appropriate review.
