Justice & Peace
Racism in all its forms has been part of American culture from its earliest days, and part of our cultural experience as well. Recently, however, it has become more recognized as a pervading force in our society, through events such as George Floyd’s murder and the effects of the pandemic on the poor and marginalized, especially persons of color. Through our words and actions, we are determined to address racism within ourselves and our society.
We, the Congregation of the Sisters of St. Joseph of Boston, join with all who grieve and cry out against racism in all its forms. At this moment, heartbreak, frustration, fear, and outrage are but a few of the disquieting emotions resulting from the fatal arrest of George Floyd of Minneapolis. We acknowledge our own privilege and unite ourselves with others to work to dismantle racism . . .
