The tragedies that have taken place this past week in Baton Rouge, Minnesota, and Dallas have been heartbreaking, and infuriating. Painfully, they are not events isolated to this moment.

But that truth is not inevitable. Speaking up matters. Standing together matters. Peace and understanding and common purpose matter. We stand with #BlackLivesMatter, and with the friends and families of all those affected by these tragedies.
