Standing up for racial justice
Loretto Community members participated in Black Lives Matter demonstrations across the country, including in Denver, New York City and Kansas City, Mo.
On the value of protesting, Eleanor Craig SL says: “I often think of a conversation I had with Dorothy Day when I was young and she was old. I asked her, since much of the protesting she had done had not succeeded, what was the point? Her reply came quickly: ‘I didn’t do it for the results, I did it because it was the right thing for me to do.’ I feel that’s what I’ve agreed to, to show up, walk shoulder to shoulder with others. To stand up and be counted.”
