To reinforce what Chancellor Block and Vice Chancellor Spain Bradley shared in their message this morning — hate and discrimination have no place at UCLA Anderson or in our broader community.

The disturbing rise in hate crimes, intolerance and harassment in Los Angeles and across the country has left many in our community feeling vulnerable or even targeted for their beliefs, backgrounds or identities.

At Anderson, we understand that our community is strengthened immeasurably by its diversity of views, of voices, of backgrounds; respect for one another's beliefs, for the differences that together create and sustain a vibrant whole, is our foundation.

We condemn anti-Semitism. We reject every form of discrimination or bias. As a community, we must stand together against hatred or violence that targets any one of us.

To quote Chancellor Block and Vice Chancellor Spain Bradley, "At UCLA, our commitment to inclusion means we can never allow hatred or discrimination to prevail. We thrive because we are a community united through our shared values, which in turn guide our actions."

Let's continue to build a more equitable and just community, here at Anderson and beyond, and let's each commit to speaking up against hatred and violence wherever they occur.
