The Midwest Academy stands in full solidarity with organizers and activists who are on the front lines of struggles for racial justice in the face of the egregious murder committed against George Floyd and Breonna Taylor and too many others. 

We recognize that the violent acts that led to their murders reflect both structural racism and the underlying ideology of white supremacy that permeates and impacts all aspects of the lives of Black people and people of color in this country.

The hatred that led to their murders is disturbing, but the ultimate culprit is a system that enables multiple acts of violence and murder, too often without consequence.
