Statement of solidarity with #BlackAtLMU and the BFSA

The Executive Committee of the Loyola Marymount University Chapter of the American Association of University Professors (LMU-AAUP) issues the following statement:

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.”

Black Lives Matter.
