Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that.
Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that.
-Rev. Martin Luther King
Our nation is in pain. The recent and senseless death of George Floyd, and the preceding deaths of many others has forced necessary conversations to move forward that have been overdue for far too long. As an institution with a history of advocacy and justice in our roots, we’d be doing our community a disservice to remain silent in the face of such pain. We believe Black Lives Matter.
