signatories to declaration


Faith & Community Declaration signed in Southwark Cathedral on Saturday 1 October

We pledge our determination as Londoners to ensure that this great city shall continue to be a place of welcome, generosity and equality, with respect for all

We condemn and oppose prejudice and distrust and will work unceasingly for tolerance and the common good

We abhor all examples of exclusion based on ethnic identity that mar relationships between neighbours of all ages, faiths and backgrounds

We stand in solidarity with those in London who are mistreated or held in contempt because of who they are or where they have come from

We affirm that our diversity is a source of strength and that we are committed to learning from one another

We commit to living out this Declaration in our own lives, in our teaching and preaching and in our community engagement.
