UC Santa Cruz minute of silence:
"This week’s edition is a minute of silence in honor of the Black lives that have been taken due to anti-Black racism. We stand in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement. We hope you take this time and more in the days and weeks ahead to reflect upon current events and what role you can play in helping to end systemic racism in our country."
