Standing Together

As a public university in Virginia, William & Mary is called at this moment to condemn the violation of individual rights, to name our grief and outrage for the killings of African American citizens by those who should protect their rights, and to stand together in support of peaceful protest. 

We speak with different voices, from different positions and experiences, to affirm the tenets of a pluralistic democracy.
