Statement on Racial Injustice in America and Canada
Jun 3, 2020
Dear Corpus Christi-St. Mark’s College Community,
I write to you today deeply upset by the racial injustices that have sparked outrage, protests and many overdue and important discussions in America.
The inequality and injustices we are seeing in the U.S. are patterns caused by systemic racism that is also very much present in Canada today and throughout our country’s history.
At the Colleges, we strive to create an inclusive environment with respect for all. In the coming weeks, we will be sharing various educational resources highlighting actions that can be taken to combat racism. This is a learning process for us as well and each one of us has the responsibility to listen and be better.
Let’s do that together.
Sincerely, Dr. Peter Meehan
President, Corpus Christi-St. Mark’s
