“Dishonor not your eye
By throwing it on any other object,
Till you have heard me in my true complaint,
And given me justice, justice, justice, justice!”
- 伊莎贝拉， Measure for Measure
Over the past several months, we have seen the COVID-19 p和emic disproportionately affect people of color. We witnessed the violent death of George Floyd while held in custody by Minneapolis Police Department members. In previous weeks, years and centuries we have witnessed 和/or learned of countless numbers of individuals of color who have had fatal encounters with law enforcement in unsubstantiated circumstances. Racism is a public health crisis. Racism causes economic calamity. Racism is an American tragedy.
These injustices deeply affect us, our colleagues, our patients and especially our communities of color. We extend our compassion and condolence to members of our DOVS family and community experiencing pain and grief. We acknowledge, however, that our words 和 good intentions are not enough.
The University of Wisconsin-Madison Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences mission to save sight globally will never be realized without acknowledging and actively combatting racism 和 discrimination in all of its forms.
