Lauren and Janette take turns signing the following statement in ASL.

Cal-ED is in solidarity with #BLACKLIVESMATTER. We know that words and hashtags are not enough. We intend to actively share resources and create spaces of critical dialogue among educators and students to acknowledge the harm caused by inequities, bias and racism.

In Deaf education, we know all too well that silence or remaining neutral is the equivalent to choosing the side of the oppressor. We know that barriers and systematic oppression goes back generations. The time is now. Education IS political and it is time we take a stand.

As humans, we are deeply affected by this. We are furious. This is unacceptable. As educators, we know our roles are crucial right now. As an organization, together, we will continue this call for justice and plan to hold each other accountable for a better future - it starts with us. Together, we will work towards JUSTICE and understanding within our INTERSECTIONAL communities and we are committed to action. WE ARE COMMITTED TO ACTION. #JusticeforGeogeFloyd #JusticeforAhmaudArbery #JusticeforBreonnaTaylor #JusticeForTonyMcDade #DeafEd #CalED4BLM
