The protests taking place across the country are on all of our minds right now. The core of NCAN’s mission, and those of our members, is equity. We believe, unequivocally, that Black lives matter.

While we come at equity from the education angle, we know there are many other crucial fronts where we must demand change.

The college access and success field exists because of systemic racism that is baked into our society and its institutions. We all do what we do every day to push back against these systems that deprive so many students of color equity of educational opportunity.

This is an emotionally exhausting time for many NCAN members and students of color. If there’s anything we can do to support you, please let us know. We stand with you as we all trudge the road to racial justice.

We've collected a small sampling of responses and words of solidarity from NCAN member organizations. To hear what more members have to say, follow this Twitter list.
