WISR’s Statement and ACTIONS on Racial Justice

WISR’s Statement and ACTIONS on Racial Justice: The Current Voices and Actions in Support of Racial Justice Must Not Be a Moment, but Must Be a Continuing Movement Toward Racial Justice. We believe in Dr. King’s famous statement that “We shall overcome because the arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends toward justice.”

It is the responsibility of all of us to make Dr. King’s statement true, and not to be bystanders at this important time. The current and long overdue attention must be sustained beyond a brief moment of outrage in time, especially, given that the United States’ founding history was significantly based on the slavery of African Americans and the genocide of Native Americans.

Since WISR’s founding, its mission and educational programs have been committed in practice, not just in words, to multiculturalism, inclusive diversity and social justice.

Members of the WISR learning community remain committed to these principles, although each member may demonstrate their commitments in different ways, through their own individual voices as well as through their collaborative actions at WISR and beyond.

To support further the expression of these voices and WISR’s actions, we have this webpage [   https://www.wisr.edu/wisrs-statement-and-actions-on-racial-justice/   ]   to publicize our present and past actions. Members of the WISR community are encouraged to share information about their current efforts on behalf of racial justice, or to suggest possible ways to take constructive action.

TOGETHER WE STAND:

Several years ago, WISR alumna, Sevgi Fernandez, formed “Together We Stand”–which is more than an organization. As Sevgi states, “we are a movement. Our mission is to proactively dismantle racism and discrimination through parenting, education, advocacy and youth leadership development. We organize campaigns and protests across the United States calling for police accountability, racial equality in our schools and justice for victims and their families. Our organization has members of every race and religion, in every state and across the globe dedicated to racial equity and equality.” Here are links to learn more or to become involved:
