APS closed on June 10 to stand in support and solidarity with the Black community and #Strike4BlackLives, and to commit to eradicating systemic racism and discrimination, especially in academia and science.
We are committed to supporting, encouraging, and building the community of Black physicists. As a scholarly society, our role is to define and communicate strategies that bring the community together and to implement programs and convene physicists to help create a just, equitable, and inclusive STEM field. But there is more to be done—together. We ask that you use this day to reflect, to use your voice, to take action, to recognize all those who have been treated unfairly and unjustly, and to commit to bringing about long-lasting, transformational change.
