We are deeply saddened by the tragedy in Minnesota and disturbed by what happened in Raleigh last night. At the same time, we are proud to see the strength and resilience of our community today. This morning, our neighbors gathered downtown, helping one another pick up the pieces. The short-term repair is just the beginning. We have to be dedicated to identifying systemic racism and building bridges toward equity.
Violence is not the answer. We do not want to see what happened last night. We also must have honest conversations and actions to address and heal the deep divisions facing our city and nation.
