A Statement from the Chair

To our students:

We are dismayed at the recent racist violence, and murders, in Atlanta, and across the country, against Asian and Asian-American people and women in particular. We recognize that this is part of an ongoing regime of racism and violence and denounce it.  We stand in solidarity with those working against racism in our communities, workplaces, government, and cultural environment.  

This is a challenging time, continuing from a year and more of very challenging times for you all.  There are resources you can access for help.  Please do.  Some of them are listed below.

  • Students – speak to a crisis counselor by calling SHCS at 530-752-0871 and pressing 0
  • Student Health and Counseling Services: https://shcs.ucdavis.edu/

If you are wondering what you can do in support of our API community, you can also be an “UPSTANDER.” Three things you can do to stand up against acts of hate, bias, and bigotry:

1.     Intervene

2.     Delegate

3.     Distract

For more information on how to be an UPSTANDER, visit: https://lnkd.in/eZ58VSQ

You are not alone. Please take care of yourselves and reach out if you need support.

Sincerely,

L.M. Bogad, Chair, and the Faculty and Staff of the Theatre and Dance Department
