A Message from the Center for Jewish Studies

We wish to express our horror at the recent murders of Ahmaud Arbery, George Floyd, and Breonna Taylor, while recognizing that those outrages are the product of systemic racism born of centuries of racial oppression. We reaffirm our solidarity with African Americans and the struggle to stop the wanton killings of unarmed members of the black community by police while joining the struggle to address the deeply entrenched inequities, including those of income and opportunity, faced by people of color in the United States.
