The unedited PDF and text below were emailed to Point Loma Nazarene University students from PLNU President Bob Brower on Feb. 18 in response to a publication from the “Bresee Collective.” 

Brower’s email text:

Dear Students, Recently, we learned that PLNU was targeted by an anonymous group attacking our stance opposing racism.  As an institution of the Church of the Nazarene, we have decided to send out a statement to our pastors, District Superintendents, and PLNU faculty and staff to clarify our position and clearly speak into our position on racism.  I also wanted you as valued members of our student body to have our letter, know where the university stands on this issue, and know why we hold the position that we do.  We will continue to stand against anonymous attacks and call forth that which demonstrates God’s unconditional love, freedom, and truth.
