Yesterday’s verdict within the trial of Derek Chauvin represents two steps ahead: one towards accountability in policing and one other in upholding the inherent dignity of all individuals.
As a community rooted in Catholic custom and the spirituality of St. Ignatius of Loyola, we acknowledge the necessity to replicate—not solely on this historic second—but in addition on the ways in which all of us are known as to dismantle systemic racism, reimagine policing in our communities, and construct a extra simply and equitable society.
At this time, our prayers are with the household of George Floyd, the Minneapolis group, and all who proceed to be victimized and traumatized by the impacts of systemic racism and, specifically, a damaged felony justice system. We honor the work of the numerous protesters, organizers, and advocates throughout the globe who answered and proceed to reply the decision and work tirelessly to leverage their voices for change. Might we, as an Ignatian household, be steadfast in our continued work for justice.
