EBSC stands in solidarity with Black communities.
We believe in a future that values community and healing over policing and incarceration.
We see the anti-Black and anti-indigenous racism that exists in the immigration system, including higher rates of detention, deportation, family separation, and forced sterilization.
We see police violence and immigration enforcement as mechanisms for state terror that disproportionately target people of color.
We see the real effects of racism on community members who fled police violence in their home countries and now face abuse in detention centers, racial profiling, and other re-traumatization in the U.S.
We commit to challenge structures of racism and to grow systems and practices that recenter the worth, dignity and well-being of all our community members.
