Statement on Racial Violence

We are mourning the recent victims of police brutality George Floyd and Breonna Taylor, and the murder of Ahmaud Arbery, among countless others.

We offer our prayers and outrage to all victims of racial injustice.

We are painfully aware of the reality of racism and white supremacy and pledge to confront institutional bias in both our own organization and on campus at large.

The Center for Religion and Global Citizenry is committed to taking action, and will soon share ideas for how our organization can combat the anti-blackness that continues to shake our country.

We believe that by building bridges across religious difference and by leaning into the “Global Citizen” part of our name, we can help to bring about justice and peace in our world.
