A Statement from Iliff President Thomas V. Wolfe:
We grieve and are deeply disturbed by the shooting deaths in Atlanta yesterday. This act marks a clear escalation of the alarming increase of white supremacist violence against Asian/Americans and Pacific Islanders. In light of this tragic event and mindful of the destructive force of racism in our nation, Iliff renews its commitment to do its own antiracism work internally and prepare its students to courageously dismantle racism in those places they serve. I refer you to this website for information and to report acts of violence and aggression – https://stopaapihate.org/.
