Black Lives Matter - Alumni Resources

The deaths of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor and others have sparked conversation and outrage within SAA and among our communities, particularly our Stanford Black community. It is our mission to reach, serve and engage all Stanford alumni, and we are committed to listening, learning and acting at this important moment.

You may be grappling with grief, guilt, rage and any number of other feelings at this time. Know that your alumni network is a resource for connection and communion. We extend our gratitude to the alumni communities of color, who often bear the burden of educating and storytelling while managing their ever-present fears and frustrations.

It is a time of heightened awareness of violence against Black Americans and an important moment for reflection around the world. We hope you find value in this list of resources on the university’s response and scholarship pertaining to diversity, equity, inclusion and access. We will continue to update this page as further resources become available.

“Just as we are struggling through a global pandemic—one that we know has affected communities of color disproportionately—our country and particularly our Black community are now experiencing the pain and anguish from another killing that points to the profound continuing challenge of racial justice in our country . . . We stand in support and in solidarity with our Black community and with our other communities who each day confront the realities of inequality, discrimination and racism. As a community here at Stanford, we must, all of us, recommit ourselves to standing against racism and hatred, and for equity and inclusion.”
