A Statement of Solidarity
Recent events have given us pause to examine our role in addressing racial inequality. The Ireland Funds has long been a supporter of organizations which address social justice and human rights. As an organization whose mission supports peace and reconciliation, we seek to help the Irish diaspora combat racism wherever it exists. We believe that to learn, we first need to listen. We believe that to stand in solidarity, we must understand and acknowledge the pain and inequalities within our society. It should not simply be the responsibility of those affected to shoulder the weight of change. As allies and advocates we are called to share that weight with care and compassion. We urge our donors and supporters to join us in actions that can bring about positive change.
