GSC Statement

Case Western’s Graduate Student Council (GSC) holds solidarity with Black students and community members as we continue to witness senseless killings of Black people at the hands of the police. Every day, we watch as violent acts are perpetually engineered towards the Black population in physical, mental, spiritual, and emotional forms, and we are angered. The consequences of the enslavement of Black people are embedded and evident in the policies and practices in the United States and beyond. The global oppression of Blacks can no longer be endured. With this in mind, we will not remain silent and compliant to the systematic racism inherent within academic spaces and throughout society-at-large. The long-awaited time for action is now! As a graduate student community, GSC is providing resources for graduate students of color and White allies to eradicate anti-Blackness and racism, and promote racial equity. We are committed to long term anti-racism advocacy and will begin holding panel discussions on race and social justice in the coming weeks. If you have any questions or need additional resources, feel free to reach out to us. We are here to support you.
