As you know, Tompkins County, along with the whole country, is reeling from a pandemic that we have no way of predicting where it will take us societally.
As residents of Tompkins County, we have seen numerous groups come together to provide enormous acts of solidarity in response to these events. These organizations are providing more than just rhetoric; they are working in collaboration with one another to enact and sustain this movement for racial and social justice.
