Statement of Solidarity with Black Lives Matter

The Department of English stands in solidarity with Black Lives Matter and the organizations currently calling us all to account for our roles in the systemic racism that continues to plague our country. We support the protestors calling on us to say the names of victims of a compromised system of criminal justice, including: George Floyd; Breonna Taylor;  Ahmaud Arbery; Sean Read; Tony McDade; Eric Garner; Trayvon Martin; Michael Brown; Philando Castile; Tamir Rice; Sandra Bland. We mourn the unnamed and unnumbered victims. We further stand in solidarity with all CSUN students, faculty, and staff who face injustice every day. You are welcome, you are valued, and you are seen.
