Statement on Racism and Equity
Acts of racism and oppression call us to assess our own actions and those of our Society. We stand with all people demanding justice, and acknowledge the personal pain that is being experienced by many around the world, particularly underrepresented minorities, from recent events. We are vigorously committed to ensuring that the sciences can be a welcoming place for all people, especially those who have historically been discriminated against. The Society for Freshwater Science calls upon our members, colleagues, and friends, to join us in advocating for and creating safe and equitable environments in which to live, work, and practice science.
