The Beautiful Social Research Collaborative administration team has released the following statement in response to the Trump Administration's Executive Order banning certain global citizens from entering the country:
The Beautiful Social Research Collaborative stands for the respect and dignity of all individuals regardless of their religion, citizenship, or immigration status. We have the privilege of working with many clients who represent members of our community who will be affected by President Trump’s Executive Order against immigrants. As a part of a Jesuit university whose mission includes “striving to be an inclusive and diverse community that educates and cares for the whole person,” we have the responsibility to speak out.
We cannot stay silent in the face of blatant injustice, discrimination, and cruelty.
We reaffirm our commitment to positive social change by helping our clients make their voices heard through digital media and the power of storytelling. We are dedicated to maintaining the relationships we have formed with members of our community; advocating for all students, faculty, and staff regardless of their faith traditions; and standing in solidarity with all individuals who may be affected.
