Standing Together Against Racism

Dear TC Community Members:

It is with heavy hearts that we write to you about a number of horrific incidents that remind us that racial biases and institutional racism persist during this pandemic. Communities of color, who already are disproportionately affected by the deadly coronavirus, are now facing harsher treatment by police. Reports of aggressive and even violent police enforcement of social distancing regulations in low-income communities continue to mount while enforcement of those same regulations is lax to nonexistent in affluent neighborhoods. These inequities remind us all that our collective work to highlight and address the needs of the most marginalized must persist even as we adjust to new ways of teaching, learning and researching.
