In a letter Fr Kevin O’Brien, S.J., President of Santa Clara University, sent to students, faculty and staff he wrote, “Violence in any form has no place in the beloved community we want to build. Nor does silence in the face of injustice.” As a University Center of Distinction focused on social entrepreneurship, a form of social justice, Miller Center is committed to a more just and sustainable world.

Structural injustice must be exposed and eradicated. Our vision is a world where all people can be architects of their own future. This means tearing down systems of oppression and dismantling the inequities preventing the freedom to live freely and thrive.  Racism has no place in the world.

Action is needed today, tomorrow, and into the future. We pledge to continue to support social entrepreneurs and our community globally, who are overcoming systems of injustice by fostering a more inclusive society. “So, roll up your sleeves and don’t be a prisoner of ignorance,” says Guy Johnson, son of Maya Angelou. Miller Center re-commits to listen more, talk less, and support the building of a better future.

In solidarity,
Miller Center Team
