Faith leaders stand together against racism
August 24, 2017
As faith leaders in this community, we are deeply horrified and saddened that a gathering of white-supremacists is being planned for this Saturday in the City of London.
We stand together today, as faith leaders from synagogues, churches and mosques in the City of London, united with faith leaders from across this country, to strongly condemn racism in all its forms.
We stand together in recognition that we are created equal and we celebrate and honour the dignity of all people. We stand in solidarity knowing too that we belong to each other and, therefore, when one of us is being marginalized or threatened, we are all marginalized and threatened.
We call on people of faith and good will, to join us in our prayer for peace and our work for justice.
