“Now more than ever, as a community, we need to recognize that if any one of us fails to live up to our values, we have all failed. If any one of us fails to apply urgent action to solving the issues of race that have caused so much pain and suffering, we have all failed. If any one of us demonstrates hate and ignorance, we have all failed.

Bridgewater State University always has and always will actively pursue truth and understanding as we activate our values of diversity, inclusion and equality.” —Frederick W. Clark Jr., Esq.
