We encourage all members of the Martinos community to listen to the POC voices being amplified on social media and discuss these events with each other. Racism, brutality, and hostility towards the Black community remains after news coverage fades. The responsibility is on those with more privilege and power to learn how to be proactive allies — WiS commits to continuing this work, and we hope you will join us.
