Our Response to the Buffalo, NY Tragedy
INACTION AND SILENCE ARE UNACCEPTABLE
The latest tragedy, the targeted, racist slaying of African Americans in Buffalo, New York has deeply wounded a close-knit community and –once again-- ripped open the wounds of the greater community of Black/African Americans. It’s not as if we had healed from the executions of George Floyd and Ahmaud Arbery, even though their killers met with justice. It is not as if the killing of unarmed Black/African American such as Breonna Taylor, Tamir Rice, or Michael Brown, the killing of the nine at Mother Emanuel Church in Charleston, S.C., among too many others to enumerate here, were not still weighing on our souls. No. But as we’ve endeavored to live peacefully with all men, as much as the ability to do so lay within us, there comes --yet another-- assault on us as a people.
FOR MORE THAN 50 YEARS
The Black Ministerial Alliance of Greater Boston (BMA) was founded during the 1960’s civil rights movement with a mission to provide spiritual nurture to clergy, advocacy, and program services for the larger Black community. Starting as an interdenominational group of 20 clergies, the BMA has grown to become an inclusive alliance of churches, faith, and community-based organizations reaching around 20,000 ethnically-diverse parishioners and clients in Greater Boston. Today, the BMA has merged its efforts with the Boston Ten Point Coalition. The Boston Ten Point Coalition has been around since the early 1990s. They focus on violence prevention and youth reformation in churches and the larger community. This focus helps them redirect the lives of at-risk Black and Latino youth.
On behalf of the BMA TenPoint Board of Directors and staff, we wish to express our deepest appreciation to our friends and partners--the foundations, corporate donors, and individuals who have generously supported the work of BMA TenPoint over the past year.
