A message from the NECBAC Board of Directors

March 23, 2021

NECBAC has spent 45 years working against systems of white supremacy by uplifting students of color and BIPOC staff to make substantive change in higher education. Today, we stand in solidarity with our Asian American/Pacific Islander(AAPI) family. We know that Tuesday’s murder of eight people, including six women of Asian descent, is a byproduct of a structure of white supremacy. We know that the last year of anti-Asian racism and violence is a byproduct of a structure of white supremacy. 


We also know that we need to look inward to uncover the ways that AAPI students/staff are struggling because of the targeted hate crimes of the last year. As an organization, we are committed to uplift these voices and stories now and in the future. 


In solidarity,


The NECBAC Board of Directors
