In GSEHD, "we are mourning and hurting as the depravity of racism, again, infects us to the core. How to stop the spread of this disease is the question we all need to make our #1 priority if we are to survive as a nation... saying and doing nothing would be sinning by silence", (GSEHD Dean Feuer). Through our work in Education and Human Development, we commit to 'not staying silent' and to prioritizing our efforts in the service of equity and social justice.
GW's Office for Diversity, Equity and Community Engagement (ODECE) sent a message to the GW community in the wake of the brutal killings of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery and Breonna Taylor, along with the racist incident in Central Park. ODECE and university partners offer support and resources, and will host events for GW to come together to process, work on healing, learn from one another, and move towards action.
