Justice & Peace

Issue: Racism

SSJ Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Committee

In 2021, the Sisters of Saint Joseph established what is now known as the Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Committee to continue the ongoing work of eradicating the sin of racism in our world, and in ourselves. The committee, comprised of Sisters and lay friends, are exploring and responding to the unconscious racism in ourselves as individuals, as a religious congregation and as partners in ministry. We recognize that these unconscious biases can influence our attitudes and our choices in very subtle, yet powerful ways. Our goal is to create a structure that would support practices that would better equip us to recognize and eradicate racism when we encounter it. We know we cannot do this alone. The work of racial justice is all of our work in order to bring about the peaceable kingdom (Is.11).
