A Statement From the RegEd Executive Team
There are times when we must make clear what values we hold and state them clearly, and we feel strongly that this is one of those times. Remaining silent is not an option.
RegEd has always stood for diversity, inclusion and equal opportunity for all.
Intolerance and discrimination have never had a place in our organization or in our communities. We stand with our colleagues and our communities who are hurting right now and have been hurt for centuries, with those who have been murdered, oppressed, or marginalized because of the color of their skin.
We unequivocally support the Black Lives Matter movement. We indisputably stand as resolute allies with people of color – both those in the RegEd community and beyond – as we seek to draw attention to recent and historic atrocities to create change. And we condemn the structure that has enabled those atrocities. We stand with protestors everywhere who seek justice and positive change and we will seek to participate in effecting that change.
