Statement from President Grudzen on Racism
As president of Global Ministries University and as a human being caring about our nation and our global community I am compelled to speak out against the overt and covert racism that sadly still plagues our nation. The killings of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, and far too many others call into hideously sharp focus the sustained and systemic injustice perpetrated on Black people.

GMU recently became an "ally" of Re-Li-Gi-Ca , an organization connecting spiritual, philosophical and religious traditions. It states: "Human traditions overflow with quests for deeper meaning and belonging; and, these age-old quests are like ligaments in the body, connecting our inner and outer lives. Re-li-gi-ca is focused on re-liga-menting our daily lives in connection. [Its] blogs, podcasts, and resources are aimed at re-aligning, re-imagining, re-assuring and re-ligamenting all of us."
