DHI Statement on George Floyd

We at the DHI are extremely disturbed by the events surrounding the death of George Floyd and acknowledge the pain and suffering surrounding the continued, extralegal killing and persecution of Black Americans, be it in Minneapolis (Mr. Floyd), Georgia (Ahmaud Arbery), Kentucky (Breonna Taylor), New York (Christian Cooper) -- wherever human lives are threatened by or lost to racial violence. We want to express our solidarity with the protesters who are demonstrating against systemic racism and the violence it breeds.

We were gratified to see this powerful statement by UC Davis Chancellor Gary May:
