Social Justice, Anti-Racism, & Allyship
“The ones who have a voice, must speak for those who are voiceless”
Saint Oscar Romero
The UCC believes we all bear the responsibility of acting as catalysts to meaningful and structural change as we strive toward a socially just world and Notre Dame community. While individuals may engage in this work internally, it should not come at the sake of public advocacy or the widespread promotion of social justice. In light of these responsibilities, we have procured the resources listed below to help all of us in the Notre Dame community learn more about how to engage in meaningful action that fights for an inclusive, safe and anti-rascist community.
