C3 Statement of Solidarity (June 10, 2020)
Over the past few weeks, the recognition of the tragic murders of Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, and George Floyd were the result of inhumane brutality that is often perpetuated by a culture of white supremacy, which is reinforced by systemic racism and endorsed by racial injustices. These Black lives, like so many others, have awaken the conscience of this nation and sparked protests not only around our country, but across the world to bend the moral arc toward justice and equality.
Police brutality, systemic racism, and racial injustices have plagued our country, specifically for our Black brothers and sisters, for many years. So we, the Carolina Career Community, stand with the Black community to condemn these injustices and work together to build a better future for our departments, our students, our university, our state, and our country. We, as career professionals, have a role in making change around education, work, and opportunity gaps in regards to racial disparities.
Everyone is processing what is happening differently. Racism didn’t start in our time, but it can end with us. And to be clear, these things are not our fault, but this is our fight – We each have a part. We all need to operationalize our solidarity and move into action. Leading as the 1st public university in this nation, we must lead to stop silence and initiate progress.
We charge the Carolina Career Community to do the following:
- Initiate courageous conversations to establish cultural humility throughout the University
- Identify and correct any systemic racism and racial injustices that may exist within our departments
- Develop a genuine commitment to sustainable change that leads to impactful action across our campus
- Activate Carolina by using various forms of accountable activism to lead to perpetual political and social change
Our commitments can only be as useful, as they are demonstrated. Let’s not only make it a great day to be a Tar Heel, but make it a great day to effectuate change for our world!
Let’s Activate Carolina! #ActivateCarolina
