The statement appears in the latest issue of The Tufts Daily, and can be found here. The letter was written in collaboration with graduate students from across the Tufts community, but organized largely by UEP students. It mentions the impressive work and organizing done by Tufts’ undergraduate population and calls for increased involvement among the graduate community. Urban planning, in particular, has had a complex history with Black communities. Recognizing this, these UEP students strive to build equitable cities “where Black lives do indeed matter.”
