Sí Podemos: UVA’s Latinx Employee Resource Group’s Statement on Equity
The University of Virginia’s Latinx Employee Resource Group condemns the racism and xenophobia that have long served to enshrine systemic oppressions in the United States. We advocate for greater visibility of racial and linguistic difference in our community and advocate for a more supportive and enfranchising infrastructure for Latinx and other communities of color, at UVA and beyond. We stand with undocumented Latinx peoples, in and beyond Charlottesville, as they fight for access, inclusion and a more just immigration process and system. We struggle together, with communities of color, in Charlottesville and around the world, who seek liberty and equity for all.
