"As we face the threat of a global pandemic disproportionately impacting members of Black and Latinx communities, we also condemn the scourge of racism and police brutality. Today, we offer #MemorialForUsAll as we grieve with our colleagues, neighbors, and fellow Black Americans. We condemn racism, injustice and hate. #BlackLivesMatter now and always."
