Statement in Solidarity with Mizzou
and black student organizing everywhere
As black students at University of Missouri, Ithaca College, Yale University, Howard University, and elsewhere continue to have their lives threatened and devalued by anti-black violence, NYU Students for Justice in Palestine would like to reaffirm its support for all anti-racist struggles. We stand in complete and unwavering solidarity with #ConcernedStudent1950 activists, who are inspiring in their commitment to organizing against institutionalized racism.
NYU-SJP understands that you cannot commit yourself to one anti-racist struggle without committing yourself to all anti-racist organizing everywhere. While each of our struggles is unique, they’re interconnected. We will not remain silent as black students and people of color have their rights to education, safety, and life threatened. We will not remain silent as their voices and demands are violently repressed. We call on our allies to stand up against anti-black racism when they see it. Silence is complicity.
