The Bahá’ís participate extensively
in activities aimed at the eradication of racism and racial discrimination.
Many Bahá'í communities have sponsored public meetings,
conferences, summer schools, written newspaper articles, and
developed radio programs and exhibits in support of the objectives
of race unity.
Bahá'ís are frequently in the community forefront
of national and local race unity efforts designed to eradicate
racism. Bahá'ís also participate on such
boards as the National Conference for Community and Justice ,
human relations commissions, and interfaith service groups.
A number of Bahá'í communities have established
race unity committees with multiracial membership that have developed
programs to eliminate racial prejudice and to create bonds of
mutual respect among peoples of different races in their local
These committees have attempted to contribute to the elimination
of racial prejudice in society at large through extensive collaboration
with leaders in government, education and religion. Despite the
inevitable obstacles encountered by the Bahá’ís
in their ongoing process of eradicating racism from their communities,
their experience has been a positive and unifying one.
