RIFLA Statement and Call to Action

     Today we stand in solidarity with all those who are protesting, and most     especially with our students and with the Black community of Rhode Island. We   condemn the killing of George Floyd and recognize that it is yet another racially   motivated death in a country where people of color are oppressed due to   centuries of systemic racism.

     As educators, we realize that we must do our part to combat all systems of   hate, injustice, racism, and violence in our society and that we must strive to   make our classrooms inclusive, safe places for all students. We acknowledge   that  we must confront and try to dismantle our own biases and be willing to   talk  openly and honestly with our students about race and personal identity. As   language educators, we recognize that language has the power to build   empathy and traverse the divide within our communities. Making space for   dialogue on race, and racism in the US, while difficult, is essential. Having   challenging discussions with our students on equity and justice is essential. 

     What we say matters. Speaking up matters. However, what we do matters   more. Our actions matter more. We pledge to do more, to honor this work and   our students, by learning, questioning, listening, and taking action. 

     Black Lives Matter. Always.
