Yesterday, the board of officers of the American Philosophical Association issued an additional statement condemning racist violence and police brutality as requested by the Committee on the Status of Black Philosophers.

The statement reads as follows:

The APA supports the Black Lives Matter movement in its demand for an immediate end to police brutality and the murder of Black people. The APA is committed to addressing the problem of anti-Blackness in the profession.

The APA invites philosophers to explore resources for teaching about race and racism in our Diversity and Inclusiveness Syllabus Collection and, in particular, its section on Philosophy of Race.
