We are in awe of the courageous communities in the United States (and the world!) That act against police brutality, racial inequality, and other forms of systemic racism that target and harm black communities.
We are inspired by the crowds on the streets, those who donate money, time and resources from home, and everyone who takes it all to heart and educates themselves, their families and their friends.
We mourn those we have lost over the years and who have recently lost: #GeorgeFloyd #BreonnaTaylor #DavidMcAtee #TonyMcDade #AhmaudArbery #NinaPop among too many others.
But being awesome is not enough, we all have to do the job. At CET, together with our parent company Academic Travel Abroad, we are committed to long-term unlearning prejudices within our own organization and to hearing and reinforcing the voices of black students and colleagues in international education.
In a first step, we donate funds to support the communities that need it now (more on that tomorrow). We double our efforts that Fund for education abroad, an organization committed to providing BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color) students with access to study abroad. And we encourage our employees to use their philanthropy vacation to find their own meaningful ways to contribute to the ongoing efforts.
We do not have all the answers, but we are committed to showing solidarity with the black communities and doing our utmost to work towards a fairer future.
