CSA Statement in Response to the Murder of George Floyd

June 03, 2020
By Sister Ruth Battaglia, CSA

CSA Logo

In the spirit of our CSA Statement of Mission which reads, “we continue to respond in our own times to those whose faith life or human dignity is threatened”, we strongly condemn the police-killing of another black man on the streets of our nation. We mourn with the family and friends of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahamaud Arbery, David McAtee, and all the others who have lost loved ones to law enforcement violence. The continued killing of black people; the constant harassment of people of color; and the denial of the rights and dignity of our black neighbors must end now.
 
We recognize the sin of racism and the terrible reality and frustration of those suffering from our nation’s 400-year history of institutionalized racism. In that spirit we…

Grieve injustice in our world.

Stand in Solidarity with our sisters and brothers of color 

Acknowledge our own privilege.

Support those assembled in peaceful protest. 

Pray for an end to violence.

Unite ourselves with others to dismantle racism.
