EAST BRUNSWICK, NJ - The East Brunswick Interfaith Clergy Council stands with family and friends of George Floyd and all victims of acts of racism. Our hearts are broken by the senseless loss of life due to violence.
No one should ever feel afraid of being targeted by the people who are sworn to protect and serve us. We commend the officers who are standing with the peaceful protestors to work to heal this divide.
We are all children of the same creator. We are all created equally. We are all deserving of equal treatment by each other. Faith teaches us to take care of each other and be kind to each other. We are appalled by racism, injustice, and abuse of power, and we pray that every human being in our country will be treated with kindness, justice, and righteousness.
While we stand with the peaceful protesters and the officers standing with them, we have no choice but to condemn those who are causing harm and fostering hate.
We urge all religious and civic leaders to work together and to speak out against hatred and bigotry in any form. We urge everyone to stand together against injustice.
Only by remaining united can we achieve the goal of having a kinder, more just and peaceful world.
