Public Statement reaffirming our ongoing commitment to antiracist action
September 1, 2020
We, the faculty of New Brunswick, recommit ourselves and our seminary community to antiracist action. We stand against white nationalism and white supremacy. We strive to root out the pervasive anti-Black racism that pervades the institutions of law, policing, government, commerce, education, and even religion in the United States and that have oppressive extensions throughout the broader world. We have made antiracism statements before, but strive to press beyond words into antiracist action. Let us lament, speak truth to oppressive power structures, organize within ourinstitutions, and agitate, or in the words of John Lewis, “get into good trouble,” at every level of society in the pursuit of justice. We encourage all persons of faith to join in antiracist actions to bring about a more just world.
