Solidarity with BLM & Undergraduate Resources

Let’s get straight to the point: The UW Sociology Department stands in support of and in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement. Many of us in the Sociology Department – students, staff, and faculty – are in pain and grieving. Many among us are actively involved in seeking change.

The current moment will hold historical significance for all of us. Our hope, as sociologists, is that this movement will catalyze change for police accountability, racial justice, and a better version of our society for all of us – particularly our Black friends, neighbors, and loved ones.

Here we have compiled a list of resources. Please use them to take care of yourself, process your experience, educate yourself, and act.
