STATEMENT ISSUED 06/04/2020:
Tippie Senate offers our deepest condolences to those most affected by the murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, among the countless others whose stories remain untold. We recognize the feelings of anger and frustration surrounding these events and understand that we cannot truly comprehend these injustices unless they are personally experienced. These events have only strengthened Tippie Senate’s commitment to create an equitable environment for people of color, especially for members of our community who are black. Tippie Senate cannot fulfill its duty to represent all of our students if we turn our backs on the students who are deeply affected by institutional injustices. We vow to confront racial discrimination in our community through education, dialogue, and action.Many wrongs need to be righted. Tippie Senate looks forward to working together with you to create a space where all of our students’ lives matter.Black lives matter. You are heard. We stand with you.
