Dallas Friends Meeting Stands in Solidarity with Black Lives

   The Dallas Friends Meeting (Quakers) stands for equality, justice and compassion.  We feel anger and sadness that there has not been more progress in race relations.  In response to the murder of George Floyd, the deaths of many other Black Americans, and the ongoing racism deep seeded in society, we stand against inequality, injustice and lack of compassion toward people of color.

   The Dallas Friends Meeting denounces the ongoing cases of police brutality leading to death and all such instances which go back centuries. We denounce the unequal holding of Black lives. We denounce the violent treatment of peaceful protesters across the nation -- in Dallas and even in front of the White House. We denounce the obstacles placed before people of color who attempt to vote. The Dallas Friends Meeting believes that justice work is spiritual work that we must do. We stand in solidarity with all people working toward anti-racism.

   We understand that since the early days of the religion, Quaker leaders and institutions have been embedded in a prevailing culture of white supremacy. While we are proud of the many Quakers who stood up for justice and freedom over the centuries, abolitionists often did not view African Americans as equals, Quaker schools were slow to desegregate, and today Blacks and other people of color often feel unwelcome in our Meetings.  We seek to reveal and eradicate the elements of white supremacy that are woven into the Quaker tradition.

   As Friends we recognize dismantling systemic racism is a long-term commitment and ultimately not the responsibility of people of color. It is the responsibility of white people—the people who built and continue to benefit from the system of institutional white supremacy. We know our work of rebuilding must include Black people and all other people of color. We commit to digging deeper and putting into practice becoming fierce, brave, proactive allies of Black people, Black lives, and Black bodies. 

Stop microaggressions against people of color
