Message from the Chair

I am very much troubled, as I am sure you are too-- by the recent killing of Mr. George Floyd. The heinous circumstances surrounding his unrightfully suffering and subsequent death are inconceivable, inhumane and unacceptable. This act is a manifestation of deleterious, derogative, demeaning and destructive forces inherent to racism, ethnocentrism, prejudice, and white supremacy. The image of the police officer’s knee on the throat of a man incapable of defending himself, pleading for help, suffering, and slowly dying--now so engrained in our consciousness, depicts a deep divide of oneness, a violation of concern for others, and is in direct opposition with the core ideologies of humanity--  and of us being extensions of creation’s generosity and love.
