Asian Network at Yale is committed today, tomorrow, and the long road ahead to dismantle anti-Blackness, together as allies to the Black community.
Call to Action
We call the Asian Network at Yale and other members of the Yale community to take action through discussion, advocacy, and pledging to make lasting change.
Many resources are already available online, in books, films, and through the work of other organizations to dismantle institutional racism. The Social Justice Ad Hoc Committee has curated the following online resources based on the actionable steps it has pledged to take for the Asian Network at Yale community. We welcome greater participation in this ongoing conversation to build empathy, to develop understanding, and to seek justice for the Black community.
