Black Lives Matter and Global Racial Justice Initiative

In line with our mission to educate globally engaged citizens and contribute to peace and justice in the world, the Center for International Studies (CIS) announces its “Black Lives Matter and Global Racial Justice” initiative, an integrative and evolving commitment to addressing racism and its many manifestations in the U.S. and abroad.

Our position paper, “Black Lives Matter: Center for International Studies’ Position on Social Justice and Equity,” which inaugurates the initiative, is both a statement of principles and an action plan. It prompts us to consider and respond to fundamental structures, practices, and sensibilities that inform racism, racial discrimination, and other forms of racial inequity, which range from the subtle to the stark.
