Statement on Anti-Racism Action

 
The HIV Prevention Lab acknowledges the violent and tragic history of racism and colonialism as well as the ongoing oppression of Black, Indigenous, and other people of colour. We also acknowledge that both science and academia are complicit in these systems of racism and oppression.  We commit to respond with anti-racist action, including:
  1. Actively recruiting and supporting Black, Indigenous, and other people of colour in our lab.
  2. To conduct research examining the role of racism and colonialism in the lives of people who are Black, Indigenous, and/or other people of colour.
  3. To conduct intersectional analyses that examine how racism and colonialism interact with other oppressive systems such as homophobia and sexism in the lives of gay, bisexual, queer, and other men who have sex with men who are Black, Indigenous, and/or people of colour.
  4. To mandate training among lab members on anti-racism and anti-colonialism, and to mandate that we discuss how to implement this knowledge to improve our research and clinical practices.
