Black Lives Matter
UWC NYC is outraged at the murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery and the many that have come before them at the hands of police in the US; and at the continued police violence against protesters on the streets this week.
We stand in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement and all those peacefully protesting for racial justice, and strongly condemn police violence against unarmed protesters. The UWC values call on us to work towards peace and justice for all people; now more than ever, we must strive to acknowledge and condemn all forms of institutionalized racism.
Below is a short list of resources to learn about the context of these protests, how to combat anti-racism, and ways to support the protests on the streets or from home. We welcome any suggestions from the UWC community on how to best support this movement, please reach out to us at email@example.com.
Watch the UWC Unlocked "Meeting at the Crossroads: A Dialogue on Race Relations", a three-part alumni discussion on UWC Hub.
