Statement Against Racism

The Work and Family Researchers Network (WFRN) is united in our deep anger and sadness about recent and continued acts of violence and brutality against Black people in the United States. We express sorrow and condemnation about the unjust killings of Black Americans including George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and many others. We stand firm in our declaration that Black Lives Matter and in our commitment to justice and equality across the globe.

As an organization, we are not exempt from the reflective work necessary to disrupt structural racism. The present moment is an opportunity to reflect on ways to enhance equality and inclusiveness in our organization, work-family scholarship, and larger society.  WFRN is dedicated to ensuring diverse voices are represented in our organization’s membership and leadership.
