"It is with great sadness that we witness national incidents of violence and racial injustice in our country.

Roswell Park has always been a place of healing and hope, committed to justice, fairness and love for our fellow person. We strongly affirm our stance against all cruel and senseless acts of harm against those who are oppressed in our country. We forcefully reject any and all forms of racism, while at the same time, doing all that we can to promote health, peace and collaboration.

In these times, it is important not to remain silent. Doing so can perpetuate the injustices that have existed among Black Americans, Asian Americans and many other groups. At Roswell Park, we are a patchwork of cultures and a family of different individuals, all bringing our full selves to work each day for the benefit of our mission.

I want to stress to every member of the Roswell Park family from any other group or culture that has been subjected to targeted violence and bias: You are safe here. You are valued and respected. You are appreciated. You are family. We stand with you.”
