Navigating the news

Friday January 12,

Yesterday, President Trump was quoted saying hateful and racist words against the peoples of the nations of Haiti, El Salvador and other African nations. These words are harmful and are antithetical to the values of the HCC. The HCC strongly speaks out against race, prejudice, bigotry and hate. The HCC is committed to and stands in solidarity with all students and staff, regardless of their race/ethnicity or other social identities.
