Dear Friends,
The Sisters of the Divine Compassion are deeply saddened by the death of George Floyd and dismayed at the violence that caused it. We hold Mr. Floyd and his family in our prayers. We stand in solidarity with all those seeking and acting nonviolently for an end to racism and the many injustices it causes in all dimensions of our lives as Americans. May we all come to recognize our essential interdependence and the need to reform our ways to God’s peace with each other and our world.

 

White Plains Religious Leaders, an interdenominational organization, put together a peaceful protest called “Circle the City with Love.” The June 4th event brought out hundreds of residents who formed a “circle” along city streets. People stood shoulder to shoulder in solidarity against racism and for peace and justice for all people. RDC Community members brought our banner and their presence affirmed our belief in the Gospel call to “Justice, justice shall you pursue” (Deut. 16:20) and “Love your neighbor as yourself” (Lev. 19:18).
