Dear Stanford students and postdoctoral scholars,

We, like many of you, have been watching the violent events and aftermath at the University of Virginia and in Charlottesville with shock and concern. The violent expressions of racism, anti-Semitism and bigotry are antithetical to the values of our country and contrary to the fundamental ideals of Stanford. There is clearly far more that our nation can do to achieve equality as well as civil rights for all.
