The Mount’s Statement of Solidarity with Black Lives Matter

We Are Unstoppable

We believe in the power of ordinary people to do extraordinary things. Every day, our students astound us with their intellect, strength, and never-say-die spirit.

They are, in a word, UNSTOPPABLE.

The Mount’s Statement of Solidarity with Black Lives Matter

Together, The Mount stands in solidarity with the Black community in the fight against systemic racism and injustice. We will continue to do our part to listen, learn, educate and to confront systems of oppression and targeted violence.  As our community joins in unity, we acknowledge that silence and inaction contribute to the maintenance of ongoing institutional racism and other structural inequalities.  We thereby pledge our commitment to work to advance racial justice in our society, in academia and within the Mount community.
