Indianapolis Propylaeum Statement on Racial Injustice
The Propylaeum stands against racial injustice. We affirm that the past 400 years of racial injustice has torn a hole in the fabric of our society and that action must be taken to mend and heal this divide.
The Propylaeum stands in solidarity with the African American community.
The Propylaeum has a long way to go, to own our past and to move forward to integrate and celebrate our sisters of color.
As an initial step we affirm:
• Current events affect humanity in its entirety, even if they do not happen at our doorstep.
• Racial injustice is not acceptable in all aspects of society.
• We are enriched by people from different backgrounds and life experiences.
• As an organization, we must educate ourselves to recognize implicit bias and act in support
of the rights of all.
