"In this moment of unspeakable tragedy, there also lies incredible opportunities to collectively unite, mobilize, advocate, speak out, and educate others and ourselves. However, for many of us, we do not know how to start the conversation or what actions to take.

As Catholics, we simply cannot stand by and not respond to incidents of racism and inhuman treatment of our black and brown brothers and sisters. Let us harness this unique moment to usher God’s Kingdom of Heaven into being, especially for people of color who are hurting so deeply and in need of healing."
