Black Lives Matter – December 8, 2020

Casey Goodson. Yet another name we all must say and remember—another police shooting, another young Black man killed, another grieving family. The wounds of systematic racism continue to deepen.

We are heartbroken and recognize the immense pain that this brings to our students, staff and faculty, especially our Black brothers and sisters. We must continue to face the ongoing issues of institutionalized racism, discrimination, anti-Blackness and law enforcement targeting of Black people. We must take steps to support one another and move forward as an equitable nation. We will do our part in Washington State by advancing the conversation and must intensify our actions within our sphere of influence to create equity and encourage a cultural shift at Bellevue College.

Black Lives Matter. Always.

Respectfully,

Interim President Gary Locke
