An expression of support…

The magnitude of the loss and frustration being felt in our Black community is unfathomable. Words cannot express our sorrow and concern for those who are grieving.

Please know that we love and care for you.

But it’s not enough to express our sympathy. We must act as well. Since the Consortium was founded, equity in education has been a cornerstone of our work, but we must do better. We pledge to listen and learn and challenge our biases. We also offer support, not as a solution, but in our determination to confront and address racism.
