We oppose all acts of racially motivated violence, no matter the perpetrator. We stand united against white supremacy that seeks to divide and destroy our nation and our communities. Many in our community are experiencing pain and anger, and we must acknowledge their distress, while we reflect on our own life journey. As we move forward, we must do so with utmost focus and clear intent of creating communities, local and global, where the human rights of all are respected and protected. Racism has no place in Howard County.
