Black Lives Matter:  Statement of Solidarity

We, the faculty of the Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies Program at Brandeis University, express our solidarity with the movements in cities across the country and on our own campus in defense of Black lives.  Concerned by the systemic daily violence wrought on Black communities, we commit ourselves to addressing, in our Spring 2015 classrooms and beyond, the endemic issues that perpetuate structural inequalities and cause systemic suffering and needless death.  Black Lives matter to everyone.
