June 10, 2020

We support the movement for Black lives.

We demand the University divest from police and have signed on the "Call for Northwestern University to invest in Black students and divest from law enforcement," a letter put together by undergraduate and graduate student leaders and organizations.

We mourn the deaths of those murdered by police and racist vigilantes, most recently George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Tony McDade, Nina Pop, and Ahmaud Arbery. 

We stand in solidarity with those protesting police violence and racial injustice.

We will always be in solidarity, teaching, writing, and building for racial justice.
