It is hard to find words for the grief, the fear, and the anger that our Black brothers and sisters are feeling at this moment. The outrage and despair so many are experiencing right now are natural responses to the perpetual and unaccountable killing of innocent Black men and women at the hands of the police.
All of us have a role to play in addressing this deadly strain of racism and inaction — in our communities and in the nation as a whole. Whether it’s police killings or the disproportionate deaths from COVID-19, no one should tolerate a system that diminishes the value of Black lives. We must stand united for the health, safety, and just treatment of all.
