We, the staff at CCSD, join in mourning the murder of Ahmaud Arbery, an unarmed Black man whose death has only recently garnered media attention. We unequivocally condemn acts of violence and hatred, and are aware that they trigger racial trauma. We particularly condemn this as an act of anti-Black racism and stand in solidarity with African-American members of our community.

If you would like to seek support, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us by calling our center at 302-831-2141, and you can additionally request to speak with a staff member of color. Please see further resources and information below.
