Dear all,

The widespread and powerful response to the wrongful death of George Floyd and so many others has served to highlight the insidious role of racism in government and other institutions.  The GAPS committee would like to encourage you to actively participate in ongoing efforts to identify and eliminate racism in all aspects of life.  Here are a few opportunities this Wednesday,  June 10, for you to consider:

We recognize that support for a particular movement or campaign is always an individual’s choice, and we encourage you to exercise your own judgement in participating in these initiatives or any others. Furthermore, lack of support for actions recommended by a particular movement or campaign should not in any way be taken as a reflection of a person's individual viewpoint on a given issue.

-Your GAPS
