Standing together. Your fight is our fight.

BLACK LIVES MATTER and we will say it OVER and OVER and OVER until our black students, colleagues and friends stop being murdered! We can't pretend to understand what they go through, but what we can do is stand up and not be silent. #blacklivesmatter

In solidarity,

LMAS faculty, students and friends
