The La Salle community stands in solidarity with those who encounter unjust and inexcusable bias, hate, and discrimination. We denounce anti-Semitic and Islamophobic acts and expressions, and we call upon the members of our University community to resist ill-informed and biased perspectives.
As the words of the Hebrew prophet Amos remind us, “Hate evil and love good, and establish justice in the gate. … Let justice roll down like waters, and righteousness like an ever-flowing stream” (Book of Amos, 5:15, 24 NRSV).
Let us be cognizant of the pain caused by hate and discrimination and let us be moved to make change in support of respect and inclusivity for all. Let us work together, animated by our Lasallian values and mission, to do this important work.
