We, the Davis Center staff, mourn the death of George Floyd and countless others at the hands of police. We condemn police murder and all forms of racial violence. We stand in solidarity with the fight against systemic racism and the historic and enduring oppression of the Black community. These recent acts of violence against Black Americans – George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, and countless others – are only the latest iteration of centuries of racial injustice that continue to plague our country. As the struggle continues, we remain committed to supporting our students, faculty, and staff and to the movements for radical, structural changes to address these issues.
We remain available to talk now and throughout the summer—please email us or visit the DC website for drop in hours (still virtual due to the pandemic).
We are arranging ways for us to connect and support each other and organize during these pandemic times. Please check the website for opportunities and events.
There are many ways to be connected to this movement and to lend ourselves as agents for change. We are compiling readings, resources, and suggestions, and we welcome your contributions and your feedback on these resources.
We are here for you. Please take good care of yourselves and one another.
