President’s Note on New Zealand Violence, 3/16/18

Dear Drew community members,

We again witnessed a deplorable act of hatred—this time one that caused the death of dozens of Muslims in their house of worship in New Zealand.

I feel deep sadness about what happened yesterday and it reinforced my commitment to ensuring that Drew remains a vibrant, diverse community. Each one of us can play a role in confronting intolerance and hate and building spaces that actively work towards equity and inclusion and celebrate how difference can make us stronger.

Our thoughts are with the victims and their families, and with everyone else affected.

All are welcome here.

Sincerely,
MaryAnn
