The recent violence and civic protest in Charlotte challenges all of us to confront the realities underlying the tension: the persistent social and economic disadvantages facing communities of color.

We reassert our commitment to social justice, equity, dignity and opportunity for all, particularly those who have been marginalized, and stand with everyone here and across the country who shares that commitment.

We extend our tremendous and heartfelt appreciation to the individuals, organizations and civil servants who strive to empower and protect our communities.  We will continue to support and work alongside them to eliminate economic and social disparities and give voice to all of our neighbors.

We will seize this opportunity to listen, cooperate and respond in constructive, inclusive ways.

Sisters of Mercy of North Carolina Foundation prays for the restoration of trust across our communities.
