U.S. bishops praise Biden on “racial equity”

U.S. bishops on Monday praised the Biden administration for its “actions to promote racial equity” in housing and criminal justice reform. “The federal government has a critical role to play in overcoming and redressing our nation’s history of discrimination, and we hope the administration follows through on the important work of promoting fair housing and human dignity,” Archbishop Paul Coakley of Oklahoma City and Bishop Shelton Fabre of Houma-Thibodaux said in a joint statement on Monday.
