BENEFITING: International Rescue Committee

ORGANIZER: St.

THE STORY:

St. Marks Class of 1997 wrote -

We, friends and alumni of all classes of St. Mark’s School of Texas, honor the values with which we were raised and educated: respect, compassion, service, and a vision of our city and country that includes people of all races, religions, and origins. We are politically heterogeneous but unite in considering these values under attack by our white supremacist classmate Richard B. Spencer '97.

We repudiate Spencer and urge others to join us.

The International Rescue Committee is the principal agency in Dallas for welcoming and resettling refugees -- people whose lives have been wrecked by tragedies greater than most of us can fathom, and whose integration into our society may be difficult, for them and sometimes for us. It would be cowardly to fear them. We proudly support IRC’s efforts and denounce those who insist on seeing refugees as a threat, rather than as a source of American strength and pride, like the many previous generations of Americans who have come here under similar circumstances.

Bravo to the Class of '97. They've done themselves and SM proud. Communities around the country should follow their example and stand up and say NO! to such garbage. 1 year ago

First they came for the communists, and I did not speak out - because I was not a communist; Then they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out - because I was not a socialist; Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out - because I was not a trade unionist; Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out - because I was not a Jew; Then they came for me - and there was no one left to speak out for me.
