Statement of Solidarity
June 11, 2020
The Volume 13 Executive Board of the Drexel Law Review unequivocally expresses its support for the Black Lives Matter movement. As Drexel’s Black Law Students Association stated in its statement of solidarity, this is our call to action. We fully support BLSA’s statement, and we, too, oppose police brutality and the continued oppression and subordination of Black people in the United States.
As the leaders of an organization comprised of law students, we recognize that our words are not enough; we must show support in our everyday actions, too. As BLSA noted in its statement, there are several ways to get involved, donate, and otherwise show our support. The Drexel Law Review remains committed to showcasing Black voices and Black stories in our publications. To that end, we have featured on our website some articles from our archives that are written by Black authors, as well as articles that highlight race-related issues. Please join us by reading these articles and continuing the lifelong process of educating ourselves on racism in America, and growing to become better advocates and allies.
We also invite you to submit pieces of 1,000 words or less that we can feature on our blog in an effort to make this an ongoing conversation. Those articles may be submitted via email to email@example.com.
