Philosophy Department issues statement on racial injustice

Published on Jul 02, 2020

The Philosophy Department at Auburn University condemns police and civilian brutality perpetrated against Black people. We deplore the killings of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and countless others. We recognize that as educators at Auburn, the land-grant university of a state with a long history of racial injustice, we have a special responsibility to work against racial injustice here and elsewhere. To guide us in carrying out this responsibility, we announce the formation of a departmental action group, composed of faculty and students, charged with proposing strategies for promoting racial justice in our classrooms and through our co-curricular and outreach activities.
