The assault on Black Americans within the last several months is a grim reminder that racism still exists in our country. The killing of George Floyd on May 25, 2020, in Minneapolis, and more recently Rayshard Brooks in Atlanta, continues to spark global outrage of historic proportion and diversity, calling for an end to racial bias, use of brute force, and prejudice of any kind. The Maritime Institute of Technology and Graduate Studies and the Maritime Conference Center stand with the families and communities who live in fear of racial bias and social injustice. It is our sincere hope that peaceful protests lead to real social and legislative change as we work toward a better America with equal justice for all.
