— Brown Contemplative Studies extends its deepest sympathy to the families and communities affected by the epidemic of gun violence in America.
— As a program that embraces equity and justice founded upon our common humanity, we ask people to remember the precious opportunity and uniqueness of each human life and the consciousness we all share as human beings.
— We pledge to continue to develop new ways to appreciate these values and to work for the safety, inclusiveness, and well-being of our communities.
— We stand in solidarity with all who seek to end the senseless suffering caused by gun violence.
Be fierce; be fearless; be humane.
