To the Dartmouth community,
As we reflect on today's verdict in the Derek Chauvin trial, we must remind ourselves that while the case has reached its rightful conclusion, our work in addressing the underlying systemic racism that led to George Floyd's murder has only just begun.
Today and every day, Dartmouth stands in solidarity against racism. Yet to simply acknowledge the reality of racism in America is not enough. For our country and our community, we can and must do better.
