To our CFH community,
During our annual meeting on Monday, January 11, 2021, the Conference on Faith and History board members voted unanimously to support the American Historical Association condemnation of the violent assault on the United States Capitol perpetrated one week ago today.
As a professional organization bound not only by our commitment to history but also our commitment to the Christian faith, we felt called as a board to take a direct stand against this attack on American democratic norms, this expression of white supremacy, and this gross violation of the principles of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Thus, the Conference on Faith and History board wrote our own resolution in response to the assault on the United States Capitol. I am so thankful to serve alongside the board members who wrote this resolution. It is an honor to sign my name as President of the Conference on Faith and History.
Beth Allison Barr
President, Conference on Faith and History, 2018–2020
