Scholar Strike for Racial Justice

September 8, 2020

On September 8th and 9th, APC/GSWS is supporting Scholar Strike, an action inspired by the NBA, WNBA, Colin Kapernick and other athletes, to underscore the urgent importance of addressing racism and injustice in the United States. Conceived via a tweet by GSWS Affiliated Faculty member Anthea Butler, Scholar Strike is designed to call awareness to the racial climate in America, and the rash of police shootings and racialized violence. 

Scholar Strike is open to everyone to participate in on college and university campuses - faculty, staff, grad students, and administrators who are committed to anti-racism, and advocating for  racial justice for BIPOC in all areas of society.

Over the next two days, we invite you to visit the Scholar Strike YouTube channel to participate in the Scholar Strike Teach In, and to join us on our social media platforms (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter) as we highlight the work of Black scholars, activists, and artists in the APC/GSWS community.
