It is with deep anger, frustration, and sadness that the faculty of the Sociology, Anthropology, and Criminal Justice Department reach out to our campus community. We grieve with those mourning the disproportionate loss of Black and brown people to the pandemic and share outrage at the police killing of Black people - Black adults and youth, Black men, Black women, Black trans, Black gender non-binary, and Black intersex people.
Do not hesitate to reach out to us. We stand in solidarity with those fighting to end systemic racism and resist oppression. We share your goal of a more equal world. We value Black lives.
We support the statements made by the following professional organizations of our respective disciplines on these issues.
