We release this message to everyone in our community impacted by racism. We understand that Black students and faculty will be much more deeply affected by recent events and the day to day weight of systemic and historical racism. We offer our support for the struggles against racism now and in the days and years to come. We are grieved by the recent killing of George Floyd and other racialized people by police in Canada, United States and around the world. Racism is a threat to us all and we stand in solidarity with those fighting this cause.
In honour of all of the nurses who are out there on the front lines. We support you!
