From our Directorate Board:
First and foremost, ACPA’s Commission for Career Services sends its deepest condolences to the family of George Floyd as they, along with the entire country, mourn his tragic and unnecessary death. We stand with those who demand justice for the murders of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, Tony McDade, and the countless other Black lives that have been tragically cut short due to a system that continues to disregard the lives of people of color. While we are filled with outrage at the ongoing injustices perpetrated against the Black community and support the many protests taking place across the country, we recognize that our outrage is not enough. We recognize that we have an ongoing responsibility to support our Black colleagues and students, as well as work to dismantle racist systems and structures within our field and beyond. To those protesting these injustices and fighting for a more just and equitable world: We see you. We hear you. We stand with you.
