As a new member of the community, I'm proud of members of the University of Minnesota Senate for their statement and their commitment to social justice and societal change. I'm also proud of President Gabel for her early and bold action that other Universities and organizations are now following. And I’m especially proud of our students, particularly President of the Minnesota Student Association Jael Kerandi. Student activism, demonstrations, and calls to action give me hope that the future can be, and will be, better than the present.
