A Message from our Executive Board
The Executive Board of the California Association of Post-Secondary Education and Disability (CAPED) express our concerns regarding the loss of lives of Black individuals to police brutality. We condemn systemic racism and stand in solidarity with Black Americans as well as those who actively pursue justice and change in the wake of the recent tragic deaths of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor and others.
As an organization advocating for inclusion, access, equity and social justice for all, we are committed to addressing and dismantling anti-Black racism. During our next Executive Board meeting we will discuss how we can address bias and racism, and how we can encourage our members to be active agents of change in our efforts to create a more inclusive and equitable society.
Last but not least, we would like to extend our heartfelt support to all of our members, as well as the students and staff within our campus communities, who grieve and struggle with the atrocities and their aftermath. We invite you to engage and widely share the resources we have compiled below.
