Racial Injustice: GSO Statement & Resources

Please see our official statement at the end of this post in PDF format. Resources and their links are listed below:

Get involved.

Attend a demonstration in your community if you are physically and mentally able. At these actions, keep yourself and others safe. Wear a mask and keep a minimum of six feet from other protesters. Additionally, get involved on campus!

#NotAgainSU is a Black, student-led movement protesting racial injustice on Syracuse’s campus. They work to promote community education on institutional and systemic racism, hold SU administration accountable for addressing and denouncing bias on campus, and promote transparency between SU administration and students, faculty, and staff.
