Anti-racism statement

The Department of Archaeology at Memorial University stands in solidarity with Black, Indigenous and People of Colour engaged in the struggle against anti-Black racism today and every day and with communities around the world protesting overt and systemic racism, injustice, and inequality.

We are committed to learning more, and fighting oppression in archaeology while providing a space free of discrimination for our students and all members of the community. We will work to address racism, racist violence and discrimination through ongoing conversations and awareness-building.
