BENEFITING: International Rescue Committee
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 of different political parties and views, but unite in recognizing that these values are under attack by our white supremacist classmate Richard B. Spencer '97.
Spencer's views are un-American and a threat to civil society. We reject them and urge everyone to join us in condemning him and his agenda.
To make your opposition concrete, we urge you to do as we are doing and contribute to the International Rescue Committee (IRC). The IRC is the principal agency in Dallas for welcoming and resettling refugees -- people whose lives have been wrecked by unimaginable tragedies, 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 like Spencer who consider refugees a threat. Rather, like the many previous generations of Americans who have come here under similar circumstances, they are a source of American strength and pride.
For more information on the IRC, please see the following links:
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.
