CCRC Stands in Solidarity With the Black Lives Matter Movement
We at CCRC are anguished and outraged by the recent deaths of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, and the long line of other Black people senselessly killed by those who consider themselves instruments of justice. Today, we mourn alongside their families and communities, and we stand in solidarity with them against police violence perpetrated on Black bodies.
We are deeply concerned about the toll these racist acts are taking on Black communities, and we support all those who—over the past week and long before—have raised their voices in the public sphere, often at risk to themselves, to demand an end to police brutality, mass incarceration, and racial violence. In our lives and work, we aim to amplify these voices and look for ways to dismantle the racism embedded in American institutions.
Every day, community colleges do the vital work of educating America’s diverse students and promoting civic engagement. We will continue to support them in this work and in all that they do to uplift their communities.
On behalf of all of us: Black lives matter.
