Racism is a learned behavior.
May we be led through the eyes of a child.

A MESSAGE FROM THE LEADERSHIP TEAM
You will find attached to Bridges the very powerful statement issued by the National Black Sisters Conference, 21st Century Lynchings in America: our ‘Red Record Statement.’ It is a strong and compelling statement of the destructive impact of what has been called “America’s Original Sin.”
Please take the time to read, reflect and pray with it. May what is happening in our country move us to take heart the call of GC 37 to “live forgiveness,… to act with passion for justice…”
A MESSAGE FROM WASHINGTON SCHOOL FOR GIRLS
Attached to Bridges is a statement from The Washington School for Girls addressing the discrimination and violence too often experienced by the African American Community.
We can find hope in the efforts of WSG which, for over 20 years, remains true to its mission – to serve girls in an underserved community of Washington DC – young Black and Brown girls.
