The Black Lives Matter (BLM) protests, and related anti-racism protests, remind us of the long path still ahead towards the achievement of equity and dignity for all. ULFA stands in solidarity with this cause and affirms its continued commitment to contribute to a fairer institution and society. Racist and intersectional discriminatory practices are experienced by our Black, Indigenous, People of Colour (BIPOC) members, often recurrently, including on campus. In the face of the recent events and their aftermath, ULFA reiterates its commitment to support the right of every member to “a safe workplace free from unfair discrimination, harassment, or abuse of authority” (U of L Academic Staff Collective Agreement, Article 11.02.2) and to the realization of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) Calls to Action. It is time that we all learn from the experiences of those around us and give our time and energy to the fulfillment of changes, big and small, to create an institution and society free from racism and colonialism.
