Dismantling Racism

In keeping with the AMSSND commitment to promoting dignity and equality for all, these resources offer reflection and action opportunities to contribute to our efforts to dismantle racism.

As School Sisters of Notre Dame and as the Atlantic-Midwest Province, we lament the death of Mr. George Floyd of Minneapolis, who died from inhumane and cruel treatment at the hands of local police. The cries of Mr. Floyd for mercy, and for breath, resound through our hearts, calling us yet again to repent our complicity in the scourge and sin of racism.

Racism and the AMSSND Commitments

The four commitments of the AMSSND province—universal access to clean water, justice for immigrants, the end of human trafficking, and sustainable development in Haiti—are interwoven in a variety of ways. One critical link between them is racism. Working toward each of these goals will require us to dismantle the racist systems that oppress people of color.
