Slides for the July 31 platform given by Dr. Carolyn Parker, “Bending the Arc of History Toward Justice,” are available for viewing here. In her platform, Dr. Parker noted that there are many things that members can do right now to fight systemic racism in our society:
- Speak Up — whenever racist or unjust words are heard.
- Stand Up — whenever racist or unjust behaviors are seen.
- Act Up — whenever the opportunity arises to protest or resist injustice and discrimination.
- Put Up — some money wherever it is needed.
