The Saint Thomas More Anti-Racism Task Force aims to provide a way for people to begin or continue the process of anti-racism in their lives and communities by exploring racial equity in light of our faith and Ignatian spirituality. Our goal is to create a space for our parishioners to work explicitly and intentionally on understanding racism/issues of race. If you are interested in joining our parish Anti-Racism Task Force, please contact us!
Reflection: One Year After George Floyd's Death
May 24, 2021The
summer of 2020 revealed how each of us, in our families, neighborhoods,
professions, faith communities and schools, must take action against
racism and pry open our eyes to the unjust reality our black and brown
brothers and sisters suffer daily.
An antiracist is one who is supporting an antiracist policy through their actions or expressing an antiracist idea. (From How to Be An Antiracist by Ibram X. Kendi).
It means not just stating you are not a racist but actually working to eliminate racism.
