USRowing’s Statement on Racism and Injustice

“USRowing stands united against all forms of racism and bigotry, and we condemn the racist and violent acts that continue to plague our country. We are committed to championing equality and social justice. As rowers, we understand working as a team and building trust to reach a common goal on the water. We must do the same in our communities, standing together to fight racism and injustice. We hear you; we see you; we stand with you.”
