Statement of the National Black Sisters Conference
June 8, 2020 10:23 AM

We draw your attention to the powerful statement issued by the National Black Sisters Conference condemning "the viral disease of systemic racism that America has legitimized and practiced for over 400 years." Our black Catholic sisters wrote, "As Christians, as Catholics, as people of faith, we must do more than just pray; we must model Jesus' message to love one's neighbor. Our neighbor cannot breathe! Our neighbor is being lynched! Our neighbor is dying!" We encourage you to read the full statement and what our sisters are asking all of us to advocate for.
