Leadership Team shares LCWR statement on threats against HBCUs

Note: The following is a statement from the Leadership Conference of Women Religious (LCWR) of which the Sisters of Providence are members.

Released on Thursday, February 2, 2022

The Leadership Conference of Women Religious deplores the recent spate of threats of violence and attempts to disrupt the vitally important work of Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU). We denounce this latest demonstration of racial hate and condemn racism in all its forms whether the violent acts of Neo-Nazis and White Supremacists, or the daily acts of hate and discrimination that diminish us all.

We lament the racism that continues to afflict our communities and threaten the values that we hold dear. We pledge to stand with all whose dignity and lives are threatened by hate. We acknowledge our own complicity in the institutional racism that gives rise to hate and we commit to cleanse our hearts and rid our land of this evil. We promise to pray for our country and to continue to use our collective voice and our energy to build God’s beloved community where all can live free from the violence of racism.
