Departmental News

The Faculty of Sociology at the University of New Mexico condemn the shooting of Jacob Blake by police in Kenosha, Wisconsin. 

We watch with dismay as, time and time again, police perpetrate violence against black males with impunity and without justice. 

Our continued and enduring outrage leads us assert, again and more vehemently, that BLACK LIVES MATTER.

Please see our department’s Statement Condemning Systemic Racism, written in the wake of the George Floyd’s murder. Unfortunately, this statement remains as relevant as ever. 

Enough is enough.
