#ShutDownAcademia and #ShutDownSTEM is an initiative from a multi-identity, intersectional coalition of STEM professionals and academics taking action for Black lives. ShutDownSTEM, Particles for Justice and VanguardSTEM are in close collaboration, and working together to create lasting change. These efforts build on– and would not be possible without– the long history of Black activism, scholarship, and leadership in the fight for Black lives.
Academia and STEM are global endeavors that sustaina racist system, where Black people are murdered. No matter where you physically live, you impact and are impacted by this moment in history. This is not exclusive to the United States. We must all work against anti-Black racism.
