LMU-AAUP Stands in Solidarity with #BlackAtLMU and Black Faculty and Staff Association Demands

Following the statement of solidarity issued by the Executive Committee of the LMU-AAUP in support of Black faculty, staff, and student demands at Loyola Marymount University, the membership of the chapter voted on Sep. 18 2020 to ratify and endorse this statement as the offiical position of the LMU-AAUP chapter:

We stand in solidarity with #BlackAtLMU and the LMU Black Faculty and Staff Association and completely support the demands which they have issued. We join their calls for LMU to move beyond words and act directly against racism and anti-blackness at Loyola Marymount University. We too are “impatient with the institutional inertia that is historically, consciously, and strategically used to resist change.”
