White Supremacy in the Age of Covid
As the Board of Directors of the Episcopal Urban Caucus reflects on the 40th anniversary of our founding, we realize how much of the work that called us to “Seek the Welfare of the City…” has been left unaccomplished.
As people of faith and members of the Episcopal Urban Caucus we write to decry the sin of White Supremacy. That these acts have been occurring in increasing numbers is undeniable. One need only watch the evening news for proof. While our country is attempting to curb the outbreak of a physical disease, we must, at the same time, defeat the unholy acts of racist terrorism occurring too frequently in our cities around the country. These acts have facilitated the inequalities that have permitted and enabled the disproportionate number of victims of Covid who are People of Color.
