Statement of Anti-Racism
The Department of Speech, Language, and Hearing Sciences is in solidarity with all Black people, Indigenous people, and all People of Color, as well as others who have been marginalized for far too long. We recognize our position of privilege and affirm our commitment to combat systemic racism, discrimination and injustice within the academy and the communication disorders professions.
We commit to doing the work to dismantle and eradicate racism, bigotry and hatred of all kinds through research, education and engagement with our broader community. We continue to value linguistic diversity and strive to empower all people to develop their communication to the fullest potential.
We strive to find new ways to establish equity, challenge systemic oppression and continually educate ourselves to produce an anti-racist community.
It is by our actions that we ultimately affect the world. As activist Angela Davis once said, “In a racist society, it’s not enough to be non-racist, we must be anti-racist.”
