Chicago Women in STEM Initiative stands in solidarity with those who demand justice for George Floyd and the innumerable other lives lost to systemic racism and police brutality.

With our nation in turmoil, we must raise our voices and work together strategically to eradicate racism, racial inequality, and social injustice.

There can be no equality in STEM without an end to racism.

If you are able, we urge you to support the following organizations.

  • Black Lives Matter Chicago (link)
  • Illinois ACLU (link)
  • Color of Change (link)
  • Reclaim the Block (link)

To take immediate action, sign the following petitions.

  • Justice for George Floyd (link) (link)
  • Demand Justice for Ahmaud Arbery (link)
  • Fight for Breonna Taylor (link) (link)
