We are heartbroken and outraged by the police violence that murdered George Floyd and continues to take the lives of black people across the country. It is an epidemic of violence that must be stopped, just as the system of white supremacy that that violence supports must be dug up by the root.

We empathize with the rage of black people whose humanity continues to be denied in the most literal way and support their right and need to express that rage.

We grieve with the family of George Floyd and all victims of police violence. And we stand with all those who have taken action on whatever level to bring anti-racist change to their lives and communities.

We are for a world where equity is the norm, where diversity is embraced and celebrated, where white privilege is something we learn about in history books, where every single one of us can aspire to fulfill our god-given potential without being impeded or even killed as a result of the color of our skin.
