MAHG Program Statement on Hate Crimes and Bias Incidents

A Special Statement on Hate Crimes and Bias Incidents for Stockton Students, Faculty, and Staff

Updated 9/18/2017

In the past year, the United States has seen an uptick in public expressions of hate aimed at groups that have been historically excluded, oppressed, enslaved, tortured, and murdered in our own country and around the world. Over the summer this public display of hate resulted in the killing of the young woman activist Heather Heyer in Charlottesville, VA.

Some students and faculty at our university have experienced hate crimes and bias incidents on campus that are at odds with the mission of our university, our program, and the project of humanist inquiry.

The MAHG Program wishes to express its deepest sympathy for and solidarity with everyone who has been harmed by these events.

We also wish to take this opportunity to condemn such acts and to reaffirm our commitment to human rights and free and open inquiry.

Finally we wish to underscore that our program will always be a safe space for students, faculty and staff of all stripes to congregate. The MAHG Program will always speak out against infringements on civil and human rights everywhere.

We intend to continue our work on educating about the Holocaust and other cases of mass violence, on preventing genocide, and on raising awareness about the persistent problems of hate and prejudice in our own country and abroad. This work is now more important than ever.
