The President’s Office is partnering with the BSU to match donations made
to the NAACP Legal Defense and Education Fund, the United Negro College Fund,
and the Pioneer Valley Workers Center up to $250/person. Please use the link
below to send screenshots of your donations so they can be tracked and
counted for the fundraiser. We will always demand justice for Black lives and
accountability for the violence wrought by systemic racism, and in support of
the BSU’s mission, #AmherstActs. Open to students, faculty, and staff! The
deadline is Wednesday, June 10, at 11:59 PM. Link here:

Do you want to share the lines you've read or written with the Amherst community?
