Today and every day forward CCHE is committed to joining in the fight against hatred and injustice.
The subjugation and abuse of Black bodies is deeply ingrained in every institution, including our own, of this country and is experienced daily by the Black community.
We know that there are thousands of individuals like Tony McDade, George Floyd,Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, Eric Garner, Tamir Rice, Philando Castile, Natasha McKenna, Ezell Ford, Trayvon Martin, and Emmett Till who have been murdered at the hands of the police and whose names will never be spoken nor brought to justice. We will say their names and hold up their memories.
We will work to dismantle systems that many of us within our institution benefit from, and we will continue our work to eliminate the barriers our Black LGBQ and TGNC communities face.
