In the News

Social media presents a myriad of tweets, commentary, and opinions on the events of the last few weeks. Rage, anger, disbelief , grief and in some cases  those who choose to deflect from the underlying cause of it all - systematic racism. I have hesitated adding to this range of emotion with the thought that my voice wouldn’t make a difference - that it wouldn’t change anything. But I realized while we can’t change what happened, we do have the power to change this from this occurring again. Allow me to offer some perspective. - Ben Allen, Ed.D; Executive Director, UVA Equity Center
