188金宝搏博彩排名佩斯大学昨天在凯塞尔学生中心推出了壁画,以纪念丹罗伊·“ DJ”亨利·亨利·小(Danroy“ DJ” Henry Jr.),这是一名步调学生运动员,他在11年前被警察枪杀。

壁画有效地启动188金宝搏博彩排名佩斯大学第二届年度社会正义周, which runs from October 24 to October 29 and includes a wide range of events, lectures, and original programming to engage the campus community about issues of equity, justice, and racism. Pace University is committed to being an anti-racist institution and Social Justice Week helps foster education and advocacy to its students, faculty and staff.

In remarks at the mural unveiling, President Marvin Krislov thanked students who led this project for their hard work, their dedication to DJ Henry’s legacy, and their commitment to the Pace community.

“ DJ亨利发生的事情是一场令人难忘,难以置信的悲剧。但是他的遗产一直持续下去,”克里斯洛夫总统说。“它以他善良和承诺的遗产为生。它继续努力,以确保他纪念他。它生活在我们重要的社会正义周期中。它依靠我们对正义,进步和反种族主义的承诺。并生活在这个美丽的壁画中。”

这项倡议主要是由学生驱动的,从倡导壁画,选择艺术家,从学生政府协会那里获得资金以及为艺术品做出贡献。12英尺乘8宽的壁画由Brittney S. Price, a Los Angeles-based artist who specializes in powerful visual commentary on current events. She's recently worked on campaigns for Black Lives Matter, Change.org, Paint the City Peaceful, We Rise LA, and LA Commons.

For Irach’e “Shea” Teague and Ja’Rette Mungin – Pace University students who helped conceive and advocate for the mural – the art in the student center is a fitting tribute and constant reminder of Henry’s legacy.

"A mural in honor of Danroy ‘DJ’ Henry is important for the entire Pace community because it shows what we can accomplish together as a community,” said Teague, a senior English major from Long Island. “Equity and accountability is the only way we can achieve justice and that is the start to greater change. I’m excited to help continue DJ’s legacy.”

Mungin, a graduate student from Bronx, N.Y., added: "The mural in honor of Danroy ‘DJ’ Henry is important because it helps to promote social awareness and to spread positivity. It is necessary to be consistently socially aware so that we can protect and nurture our students of color. DJs legacy lives on through them.”

"DJ’s mural is a lasting legacy that represents not only him, but the countless amount of black people who have lost their lives through police brutality over the years,” said Student Government Association President Kimberly Mars, a junior from Jersey City, N.J. “DJ’s story acts as a reminder of the work that we have to do in this country and the commitment that we all should make to continue to push for social justice. The fight for equality is not over but this is a reminder that we are making progress toward change.”

During Pace’s inaugural Social Justice Week last year, there was a screening and discussion of the48 Hours分割,“The Story of DJ Henry”as well as a campus rally on October 29—DJ Henry’s birthday. Pace also retired his No. 12 jersey and the时钟wer at Goldstein Fitness Center以亨利的名字命名。View the full schedule of this year’s Social Justice Week events.
