We, members of Catholic women religious congregations from Brooklyn, Queens, Nassau and Suffolk counties, join our voices with our parent organization, the Leadership Conference of Women Religious (LCWR), which represents 40,000 Sisters throughout the United States. We acknowledge our responsibility for the wound of racism and the harmful consequences of white privilege which have continued to plague our nation since its founding. We join with members of good will in the human family in praying for justice and reconciliation. The statement from LCWR is as follows:
Please join us on June 8th at 12 noon for a moment of silence as we pray together for a renewed respect for human dignity for all people.
