FROM THE AAWR PRESIDENT

 

Dear AAWR members,

Recent acts of racial discrimination and hatred across the United States have again brought to light the long-standing history of anti-Black racism in our country. The AAWR was founded on principles of diversity and inclusion that condemns these atrocious acts and strongly proclaims that Black Lives Matter.

 

For me, personally, 2020 has become a time to listen. A time to be honest with myself and with others. A time to start conversations about race and inequality that might be difficult. A time for me to challenge myself to be better. To get out of my comfort zone and take action to address the long-standing systemic racial injustices in our country.
