Commit to Action
Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.Margaret Mead
Sharing the sentiments of our partners at Faith Action Network, we join our prayers with yours and so many rising up in grief during these weeks of tragedy and gun violence in Tulsa, Uvalde, Buffalo, Irvine, and other places not as prominent in the news, and as we remember the murder of George Floyd two years ago. We join voices calling out for immediate, significant decrease in the availability of lethal weapons and the use of lethal police force in our nation. We are grateful for all the ways multi-faith communities have made a place for grieving, prayer, and consolation during these difficult times, and for the powerful statements from faith leaders in our network. We stand with you in that prayer and cry out for justice. People are in a fog as they are trying to put words to the emotions they are feeling. Good people are trying to make sense of what they should be doing.
Now more than ever we urge the interfaith movement and all individuals of faith, conscience, and goodwill to commit to action against supremacist ideology, hate speech, violence, and extremism.
