Jacob Blake shooting
The recent shooting of Jacob Blake in Wisconsin will be causing great upset and anxiety for many in our community.
This and other extremely distressing incidents such as the killing of George Floyd in June, further highlight just how crucial it is to condemn racism and have a zero tolerance to any form of racist or discriminatory behaviour.
At King's, we must continue to fight ignorance and intolerance to strengthen our approach to equality, diversity and inclusion and tackle any racism or discriminatory behaviour within our community. Meaningful and sustainable change has to start with our commitment to fighting the inequality and racism we find around us – whatever our role at King’s.
More information on the efforts we are making at King's and how to get involved, including our Race Equality Network, Race Equality Action Plan and anti-racism resources are available online.
During times such as this, it is so important to look out for each other and speak to someone if you are feeling upset or concerned. Our team of Chaplains are available to meet students of all faiths. The Chaplains are practised listeners and are experienced in supporting students through any challenges you may have. You can contact the Chaplaincy and Dean’s office at firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com.
You can also contact our counselling service at firstname.lastname@example.org and your personal tutor is also able to offer support.
