The killing of Mr. George Floyd in Minneapolis is a tragedy, a trauma and a violation. Sadly, his death, and those of Ahmaud Arbery and Breonna Taylor are merely the latest documented incidents of far too many that people in communities of color have suffered in recent times- and which span this nation's entire history. 

UH&CS fully recognizes the existence of systemic racial discrimination and the resulting inequities and collective trauma for people of color. We share the pain, anger, and sadness of our students, staff and faculty as, in the midst of this health pandemic, violence and the threat of violence against Black people on other communities of color continue and escalate. 

UH&CS is committed to creating a community of inclusivity and diversity, and we stand in solidarity with our Black students, faculty, staff, and community members against these horrific acts. We unequivocally condemn acts of violence, hatred, and racism.
