#ShutDownSTEM and #ShutDownAcademia Day

Event Start Date:
Wednesday, June 10, 2020 - 12:00 AM
Event End Date:

#ShutDownAcademia and #ShutDownSTEM is an initiative from a multi-identity, intersectional coalition of STEM professionals and academics taking action for Black lives. These efforts build on-- and would not be possible without-- the long history of Black activism, scholarship, and leadership in the fight for Black lives. 

Academia and STEM are global endeavors that sustain a racist system, where Black people are murdered. No matter where you physically live, you impact and are impacted by this moment in history. This is not exclusive to the United States. We must all work against anti-Black racism. 

The names listed below are the visible contributors, which comprise a partial list of contributors to this collective effort : Brittany Kamai, Yilen Gómez Maqueo Chew, Katelyn Breivik, Mia de los Reyes, Jedidah Isler, Brian Nord, Lucianne Walkowicz, Renée Hłozek, Ximena Cid, Abby Crites, Carena Church, Erin-Kate Escobar, Stacey Lawrence, Danielle N. Lee, Casey Newlin, et al.

We hope you will join us in this movement to eradicate racism.
