F&M Athletics Statement on Social Injustice

Franklin & Marshall Athletics coaches and administrators understand that our words are as important as our actions, and we cannot be silent. We stand united with our student-athletes, alumni and families in condemning the inequities and injustices that prevail in our country. We deplore the senseless killing of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and so many others. 

We ask that our fans, friends, and supporters join together as Diplomats to denounce racism and to put an end to the forces that threaten our humanity and our ability to function as a society. We must use our talents and energies – in the same way we strive to accomplish our athletic goals – to take concrete actions for real and sustained change. 

All of us are responsible and accountable.  

We can and must make a difference.

-- F&M Athletics Coaches & Administrators
