As an alumni community, we stand in solidarity with the Black community in the fight against White supremacy, systematic racism and police brutality. We encourage you to continue to be the leaders and optimists all Bruins are — to continue to listen, reflect and take actions individually and collectively in the communities in which you belong.
UCLA Alumni Diversity Programs & Initiatives has a responsibility to ensure that our alumni community is heard and seen. We will continue to use the upcoming volumes of the Diversity Digest to amplify the voices and actions of our historically marginalized communities. We invite you to “act” through this week’s offerings:
The mission of the UCLA Black Alumni Association is to empower “alumni, students, faculty and the community at-large to form powerful associations through advocacy and mobilization that will create greater educational opportunities and resources for the African American community collectively." You can support them through their various efforts.

As always, we thank you for your love and support — our diverse alumni community means the world to us.
The staff of UCLA Alumni Diversity Programs & Initiatives
