Andover Newton's M.T. Dávila Co-Authors Statement

More than 700 concerned Christian ethicists and theologians have signed a letter released Monday, Aug. 21, 2017, "condemning white supremacy, racism, neo-Nazi ideals, and xenophobic principles as sin against God," as reported by Sojourners. The statement was released in the wake of recent violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, and elsewhere in the country.

In an exceptional show of solidarity, theologians and spiritual leaders of the United Church of Christ's seven seminaries -- including Andover Newton's Martin B. Copenhaver -- and their colleagues are uniting as signatories on this call to action, denouncing "the profound moral evil of white supremacy" and urging all Christians to make concrete change to end the benefit of white privilege.

Grace and peace to you from Andover Newton Theological School.

We write today in an effort to continue to keep the public, and especially the Andover Newton community, updated on our efforts to repatriate sacred objects from our collection at the Peabody Essex Museum to the descendants of their rightful owners. This is part of our ongoing commitment to the proper treatment of Native American, Native Alaskan, and Native Hawaiian objects and an expression of our respect for the cultures from which they come and to which we seek to return these objects.
