Black Lives Matter

We, the members of the Bowling Green State University Counseling Center staff, grieve for those tragic events in which African Americans and others have lost their lives in encounters with law enforcement officials. We also acknowledge that violence against police is tragic and hope that we can collectively work together to prevent such tragedies. We recognize that reactions to these loses as well as reactions from those who have witnessed, observed, and/or experienced acts of racism can vary markedly.  Responses may include, sadness, fear, outrage, a sense of helplessness, disbelief, and a feeling of endangerment, as well as a desire for increased unity or solidarity, empathy, and a heightened motivation to pursue social justice. As information on these tragic events continue to unfold we encourage those that are struggling to seek safe supportive spaces to process their feelings and experiences. We want you to know that we are available as a resource for you, and we are dedicated to helping foster a climate that is safe and affirming for all students on campus and within the community.
