Statement of Solidarity

Thursday, June 4, 2020

The Department of Anthropology has issued the following Statement of Solidarity:

As members of the UNCC Anthropology Community, we raise our voices to call for social justice in the United States and worldwide. In particular, we share the sadness and frustration shown in protests and other actions around the world in reaction to the murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and the many other unarmed citizens of color in the custody of police. We commit ourselves to identifying how we can best serve communities of color now and going forward, and welcome input from colleagues, staff, and students of all identities as we solidify our goals in this endeavor during the next academic year.
