St. Marks Class of 1997 wrote -
We, members of the St. Mark’s School of Texas community of alumni and friends, 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 at times 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.

This campaign is led by concerned alumni from the Class of 1997. It is not sponsored, managed, or initiated by St. Mark's School of Texas.
