#ShutDownAcademia #ShutDownStem #BlackLivesMatter

On June 10, I am joining #ShutDownAcademia and #ShutDownSTEM strike in support of Black Lives Matter. In observation of this strike, I will be dedicating my time to join an anti-racism hackathon, hosted by UConn’s SLAC and NBL communities. I will also contact my legislators to advocate for critical systemic change.

We must each take action to break down systemic racism, end anti-Black violence, and support Black voices in all areas, including STEM and academia. I urge you to join this effort—not just on June 10 but continually and in every way that you can. To find out more about what you can do, visit #ShutDownStem’s website (link), and then share your plans with others.
