Not in Our Town issues statement about racist, anti-Semitic flyers found at Princeton University

To the Editor:

Not In Our Town recognizes that there is still a lot of work to be done in dismantling racism as evidenced by the white supremacist, anti-Semitic, racist fliers that appeared recently on the Princeton University campus.

As an multi-faith community organization dedicated to the struggle for racial justice, Not in Our Town remains committed to speaking truth about racism, prejudice, and discrimination, to raising awareness of white privilege, and to advancing the cause of racial justice. We are undeterred in our fight to dismantle the systemic structures that serve as barriers to racial equality.

If we as a nation, and Princeton specifically, want to make real progress in eradicating the cancer of racism, we must collectively and individually, nationally and locally commit to doing the work to achieve that end. Not In Our Town is committed.

While Not In Our Town recognizes that racial justice work is emotionally difficult, we also recognize that it is a moral imperative that can no longer wait. As a multi-faith organization, we ask — if not us — then who?  If not now — then when?

Not In Our Town stands firm in our commitment to stand on the right side of history, and in so doing we provide a safe space where community members can unpack the deep, various, and often unconscious forms of racism. We invite people of goodwill to join us in our Continuing Conversations on Race and White Privilege on the first Monday of each month at the Princeton Public Library. The next meeting will be held on Tuesday, Jan. 2, 2018 at 7 p.m.. For additional information, visit niotprinceton.org.
