The Saint Thomas More Racial Equity Committee (Formally the 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.
We are currently planning our goals and initiatives for the upcoming year. We would love to hear your ideas! If you have questions or are interested in contributing to STM's Anti-Racism efforts, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will connect you with the committee leaders.
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.
