HumanistsMN Statement on Systemic Racism

November 2020

The HumanistsMN board has adopted the following statement:

HumanistsMN affirms that every person, regardless of race or ethnicity, has the right to thrive and flourish. Ensuring these rights can only be achieved through a sustained commitment to racial, social, and economic justice.

Given the historic racism of our country that has legitimized and perpetuated inequities for nonwhite populations, HumanistsMN supports Black, Indigenous, and People of Color as they confront systems of oppression in our state and nation. Further, we will continue to educate our members and friends about systemic racism and offer events and programs that align with our responsibility to advance equity and justice throughout our society.
