CAPS Statement on Violence in Charlottesville, VA

“Years of research and evidence have highlighted the negative impacts on peoples of color and other underrepresented persons when hateful speech, racism and violence are present in an environment.  Our students are being impacted daily by not just the barrage of media coverage regarding the increased acts of hateful speech and violence, but for our students who are the targets of such messages, the daily lived experience of such cumulative messages and acts as well.   As health, wellness and counseling professionals, we believe there is no place for racism, bias and violence in healthy cultures and communities.  We denounce such actions as harmful and divisive, and call on all campus and community members to resist the growing tolerance for such behaviors.  We call on all students, faculty, staff, parents and alumni to take an active stance towards creating and maintaining a Carolina campus that is welcoming, safe, and supportive of our community members of color and other marginalized members. Their health and success, as well as the campus’ as a whole, is dependent on it.”
