BGWS Faculty & Staff Statement on Social Justice and Racial Equality

June 17, 2020
Dear BGWS Students,
These last few months have been challenging. The global pandemic has killed over 100,000 people in the U.S., and we are grieving this tremendous loss. There has been much sorrow and outrage. Following the violent killings of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and the many others, millions have taken to the streets around the country and the world to protest police brutality against Black Americans and the systemic racism in our institutions and society. 
We at BGWS condemn police brutality, racism, and white supremacy. We support those who are peacefully protesting police violence, and stand in solidarity with those advocating and working for meaningful change. We support the movements and conversations in the United States and globally that are working toward social justice and racial equality for Black Americans. We believe Black Lives Matter.
