Standing in Solidarity with Our Asian American Community

Standing in Solidarity with Our Asian American Community

The Holy Names community stands in solidarity with our Asian American community and condemns the racist attacks we are seeing across our country. Holy Names remains committed to the SNJM values of “justice, liberating others from oppression, and service to those who are marginalized.” Amanda Gorman’s poem, “The Hill We Climb”, reminds us that we are a country “striving to forge a union with purpose-to compose a country committed to all cultures, colors, characters.”

There is no act of kindness toward others that is too small to make a difference. Take the time to plant an extra seed of kindness as the Laotian-American Poet, Bryan Thao Worra reminds us:

A single seed can turn into a forest

A single heart can transform a nation

The Holy Names’ motto of Noblesse Oblige calls each of us to support, in whatever way we can, our students, colleagues, and neighbors who are feeling the impact of the violence that continues to be directed towards the Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders in our communities. Injustice is dependent on indifference. Leadership is about showing up, standing up, and speaking up for what is right. Now is the time to:

  • Stand united to promote acceptance and kindness
  • Stand up to bigotry, hatred, intolerance, and violence

Stand up for each individual in our diverse community. WE ARE HOLY NAMES!

 

In peace,
