Yale African American Affinity Group (YAAA) stands in solidarity with the call for justice in response to the recent deaths of George Floyd in Minnesota, Breonna Taylor in Kentucky and Ahmaud Arbery in Georgia. We reject the notions of racism and intolerance. YAAA is committed to creating a more inclusive and just society. We will work to bring to life the words of Thurgood Marshall, “Where you see wrong or inequality or injustice, speak out, because this is your country. This is your democracy. Make it. Protect it.
