English Department statement of support of Equity and Inclusion

In honor of the people who are working to knit our fragile democracy together, to help enfranchise every citizen, to rectify the systematic economic and environmental and policing injustice that harm black lives—for every one of these citizens, we dedicate a year of work, reflection, and conversation about justice, racism, economic inequality, and the role that educational institutions such as Stanford play in American life today.

Here are intiatives and resources that reflect our commitment to this.
