HarvardWIT + Allies stands in solidarity with Black Lives Matter activists and leaders. We condemn these acts of violence that have taken the lives of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Tony McDade, and countless others who have died at the hands of police brutality and state violence.
We recognize that anti-Black violence and the existing trauma that surrounds these events is a daily reality for Black folks in our community. White people and non-Black people of color have to do the work to address our anti-Blackness at all times. As a community, we pledge to unequivocally and fully support our Black colleagues, friends, students, and neighbors. We will hold the systems that perpetuate these injustices accountable. We will address the ways in which our tech communities contribute to anti-blackness. We will amplify the voices and needs of our Black colleagues and friends.
If you haven’t been following our Twitter @harvardwit, we have been sharing resources for non-black allies to educate themselves and take action. We've also put together a number of resources on our website, FIGHTING ANTI-BLACKNESS: Resource List.
