Statement on Racial Justice

The members of the Economics Department at Dartmouth are heartbroken and outraged over the Minneapolis Police's brutal killing of George Floyd. We recognize that this is just the latest in a long history of violence and aggression, by the police and by others, against the Black community. We stand in support of those who suffer from this violence on an ongoing basis, and we stand with those who are combatting the systemic racial injustices of our society.
