Sign of the Times
It is our hope that the incoming U.S. Administration provides us with an opportunity to address both the systemic roots of racism and racial inequality in our country, as well as the global pandemic and the urgent needs of our people for economic security.
Soon we will commemorate the life of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Let us join the call to rededicate ourselves to his vision and legacy of Gospel nonviolence and take to heart his call to stand up for justice, stand up for peace, and join hands in a common struggle to abolish the systemic racism, poverty, and violence that threatens to tear our nation apart.
This is difficult work, but one that must be taken if we are to heal our nation, and reach across political, ideological, and racial divides to seek reconciliation, based on truth and justice, and an understanding that we share this one home – La Madre Tierra.
Wishes for peace in the new year,
Dr. Jeanette Rodriguez, ICTC Interim Director
