God loves justice. It is His very nature, and He calls us to justice as well. Therefore, we want to affirm:
- No one should die because of the colour of their skin. Black lives matter.
- Violence against people of colour must be prosecuted.
- Social policy must dismantle systemic racism.
With sorrow we confess that racism exists in Canada, and in us. We are committed to change. We are committed for the long term. We want to continue listening, continue learning, and to advocate and act for lasting justice.
