Together or apart, a flock is still a flock.
An Update on A Message of Hope and a Call to Action
“The commitments announced in July were not made in a vacuum. They occur along a continuum of change that began before my arrival at Trinity. And these steps, while significant, won’t all by themselves end centuries of systemic racism, oppression, and violence within our society and its institutions. But we can make a big difference, both in the short term and in years to come, in creating a more equitable, inclusive community in which all members can thrive by taking intentional and sustained actions.”
– President Joanne Berger-Sweeney, November 2 Letter to the Community
