A statement from WiC about these unprecedented times

Women in Computing at RIT wants to extend their support to the black community against police brutality and systemic racism in our country and around the world. We are deeply saddened by the unjust death of George Floyd in the hands of the Minneapolis Police Department, and want to express our support for systematic reform.

We stand with RIT in condemning those who exploit these peaceful protests.

During these difficult times of hurting, we want to encourage everyone to take time for themselves to heal and to reach out to one another. Now more than ever it is important for us to stand together as a community and continue towards positive changes within the RIT community and beyond.
