Racism and hate have no place here

Our initial plan to advance an anti-racist college

October 7, 2020 | Updated July 11, 2022

Our Watts College community remains deeply concerned about our faculty, staff and students of color. The killing of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor and the shooting of Jacob Blake are tragedies that underscore the need to grapple with the ever-present legacy of racism, white supremacy and discrimination in our nation. The violence against Black and Indigenous communities must end. We mobilize now with a renewed sense of urgency to advance racial justice in our local communities and the nation. We stand in solidarity with our Black faculty, staff and students and affirm that Black Lives Matter.
