I hope this message finds you well.
Attached you will find the Jewelry + Metalsmithing's BIPOC Student and Alumni departmental response.
I hope that both of you, your peers, and colleagues are feeling positive about the initiatives that are moving forward at RISD due to your powerful presentation.This work would not be taking place, in the way that it is, without all of you exercising your voice and your agency. Congrats to you all and to you both for your leadership!!!J+M looks forward to participating in the changes to come.
