VP of DEI Statement Regarding Buffalo Mass Shooting

2022-05-16T16:56:22-07:00

The person who committed this crime boldly admitted to being a racist and a proponent of white supremacy. Tragedies such as this have become all too common in this, “our America.” Acts of senseless violence rooted in extremism remind us that [...]
