A statement from the GU272 Descendants Association in response to the Georgetown Student Referendum
The GU272 Descendants Association applauds the actions of students who are doing what students have always done. Students have always been activists in moving society forward, in pursuit of better solutions for our problems.
We see this as a valuable part of a much greater response to atonement and restitution for this nation’s history of slavery.
The GU272 Descendants Association would hope that the sense of responsibility and commitment to putting the legacy of slavery behind us and the students’ commitment to the pursuit of justice will be shared and embraced by all 27 Jesuit Institutions of higher education and all other slave holding institutions.
