WGSS Endorses NWSA Statement

The WGSS Program Committee endorses the following statement from the National Women's Studies Association: 

NWSA joins people around the world who have expressed outrage at the continued state-based and state-sanctioned violence directed at Black communities. As intersectional feminist scholars and activists we are acutely aware of the multiple racialized and gendered forms of state-based violence, both overt and covert, that structure people’s lives. We understand that the police officers in Minneapolis have been arrested and charged but we believe that that is not enough. Police procedures that negatively target Black communities must be changed. We call for resistance, resilience, justice, and solidarity.
