Statement on Charlottesville
“The question is not whether we will be extremists, but what kind of extremists we will be. Will we be extremists for hate or for love? Will we be extremists for the preservation of injustice or for the extension of justice?”
–Martin Luther King, Jr.
Over the weekend, an organized demonstration in Charlottesville, Virginia, was rooted in ideas that are in direct conflict with our CMHS values of love, inclusivity, equity, and justice. We affirm our respect and care for those who have been historically marginalized and we aspire to center these stories as we work to create a more loving world. We recognize the psychological, emotional, and spiritual impact these events have on our campus community. The safety and well-being of our students, faculty, and staff remain at the heart of our work. We are available by appointment and through urgent care services for anyone seeking support during this challenging time. Please walk in or call us at 860-486-4705.
