MESSAGE FROM THE DEAN

We stand for justice

The recent wave of fatal violence against Black Americans has been unnerving, even terrifying: Ahmaud Arbery, stalked and shot while jogging in Brunswick, Ga.; Breonna Taylor, shot while in bed when police conducted a no-knock raid on the wrong home in Louisville, Ky.; George Floyd, who died in Minneapolis as a police officer knelt on his neck; and Rayshard Brooks, shot to death by an Atlanta police officer.
