This past weekend saw a series of horrific events in Charlottesville, Virginia, which led to several injuries and the loss of life. Both as the leader of the Touro University Nevada community, and as a person who has dedicated her life’s work to the celebration of and commitment to a just, inclusive and diverse society, I universally condemn any actions or expressions of hatred such as those we saw this past weekend.
There is no place in American society for racism, hatred, bigotry, or anti-Semitism. What transpired in Virginia is an affront to all sense of decency and an insult to our great Nation. I call upon our campus to embrace the qualities which make our university a just and inclusive community and ask that we all reaffirm our commitment to diversity, tolerance and social justice.
