Statement of Solidarity with those Fighting Racism and Police Violence

The Campus Faculty Association stands in solidarity with those all over the nation engaged in the struggle against racism and police violence. As educators we have a special responsibility to dismantle the systems of oppression that again and again deprive our African American brothers and sisters of their very right to live.

We call on all CFA members to do whatever they can to contribute to the ongoing struggle for racial justice, both here in our own community of Champaign-Urbana and in communities around the country.

Along with other acts of solidarity and support, we encourage members to join CFA in donating to one of the organizations raising funds in response to the arrests of protestors, such as:

Champaign County Bailout Coalition

Signed,

CFA Executive Committee
