The tragic events in Charlottesville demonstrate the dangers of bigotry and prejudice. OHSU condemns in the strongest possible terms the actions of those who promote hate and condone violence. We remain committed to our core values of equity and inclusion and our mission of healing. We abhor prejudice. We abhor violence. We celebrate difference. We work tirelessly to promote an environment that is welcoming to all because that is who we are. Our commitment to these values will not waver.
