Racial justice activists want Catholic leaders to act
August 30, 2017
This week, the National Catholic Reporter published an article highlighting an ever-increasing call from long-time racial justice advocates for the Catholic Church to do more to address the evils of racism, as recently evidenced in the violence that erupted in Charlottesville, VA earlier this month. One of the voices mentioned is of our very own IPS Assistant Professor Dr. timone davis.
Dr. davis says, “I don’t think we as a church are out front enough on this issue, leading the charge…I’ve read a couple things [Catholic leaders] have said. But at this point, we’ve had enough talk. When do we do what they’ve already written about?”
Thank you, Dr. davis, for exemplifying IPS’s vision to educate and form leaders in ministry who can adapt to the rapidly changing religious and social landscapes of the 21st century.
