Catholic Association for Racial Justice

The Catholic Association for Racial Justice (CARJ) is an independent charity and an agency of the Catholic Bishops Conference of England and Wales, established in 1984. It works in dioceses and parishes to support people from diverse backgrounds. CARJ aims to empower black and minority ethnic Catholics to give them an effective voice in the Church and in the wider society.

To raise awareness among the next generation, CARJ runs a Schools Project and Young People’s Forum for World Citizenship. Racial justice is an integral part of training in Seminaries, Colleges, Schools, Parishes and Catholic organisations.

CARJ organises the annual celebration of Racial Justice Sunday in September each year and works closely with the Bishops' Conference Department for Christian Responsibility and Citizenship.
