Sisters of the Presentation, San Francisco Speak Out Against Racism

We, Sisters of the Presentation, San Francisco, are deeply saddened by the death of George Floyd and stand in solidarity with all who have lost loved ones to similar expressions of violence. The killing of black men and women, other people of color, and the denial of the respect and dignity they should receive, must end now.

We, therefore, give voice to the condemnation of all forms of racism, prejudice, and violence. We support peaceful demonstrations, protests, efforts and works promoting justice and peace to eliminate the structures and behaviors which prompt racism and prejudice in ourselves and in our nation.

We, as a Community of Women Religious, are committed to promoting respect and dignity of all people, and pledge ourselves and our prayers to confronting racism and prejudice on all levels, while calling on God’s healing grace.
