Katharine's Personal Statement of Anti-Racism:
"I acknowledge that we exist in a white supremacist and racist culture; my privilege has been upheld by these systems. I am actively seeking to divest the power garnered through this privilege--and champion those who’ve been (and continue to be) oppressed in the process. The deaths of Black lives reflect a longstanding history of structural and systemic oppression, injustice, and police brutality. I stand in solidarity with the Black community against racism and hate in all forms."
