LCM Statement on Black Lives Matter Movement

Lutheran Campus Ministry at The University of Iowa of the ELCA denounces the violent death of George Floyd, as well as the many similar deaths of people of color. We support the peaceful protesters who are demanding social change as well as any advocacy work that alleviates racial injustice. We believe all human beings are children of God, period. Whatever your skin color, sexual orientation, socio-economic status or faith tradition, every human being has value and worth and is deserving of dignity, respect, love and life.
