Statement Following Violence: From SNJM U.S.-Ontario Province
As Sisters and Associates conscious of our call to resist racism, advocate for human rights and create welcoming communities in partnership with others, we mourn the loss of life and grieve with the families of all who have been victims of violence.
We affirm the call of the Adrian Dominican Sisters to all of us to “engage in personal and national soul-searching on the evils of our socialization in racist systems and the steps we must take to detoxify our hearts and the heart of our nation.”
We pledge ourselves to expand our partnership with others to pray, dialogue and act to address issues of racism and violence.
Love recognizes no barriers.
It jumps hurdles,
penetrates walls to arrive
at its destination full of hope.
