APSA Information Technology and Politics Section Statement of Support and Action Plan on Racial Justice and Equality

The Executive Board of the Information Technology and Politics section of the American Political Science Association, which I am honored to chair this year, has released a statement of support and action plan on racial justice and equality in response to, and as a contribution to addressing, the ongoing debate on racial injustice in the United States and around the world.

This statement was a genuine team effort for which the whole executive board deserves credit. While we have a long way to go, as a section and a discipline, to ensure we begin to diminish the presence and effects of systemic racism, we also have a clear shared purpose that this statement enshrines and commits us to implement, and be held accountable for.
