The Office of International Student and Faculty Services joins the African American community to commemorate Juneteenth while also recognizing the various ways that systemic racism, discrimination, and inequality are alive today.  As members of an interconnected world, we must champion social and racial justice, fight white supremacy, and defend the global imperative of freedom.
