CESA is Connected With All Who Support Standing Rock Water Protectors
We, members of the Critical Ethnic Studies Association Working Group, write in support of faculty and students at San Francisco State University who have organized to resist the proposed budget cuts against Ethnic Studies. On May 9th 2016, the Chairs Council of the College of Ethnic Studies organized a community-wide press conference to support students who began an indefinite hunger strike last week.
The Critical Ethnic Studies Association supports the Kiaʻi Mauna and the overall struggle of Kanaka Maoli to protect and care for their homelands. In the spirit of informing our membership about the struggle, we offer this statement and links to ways you can support and boost this movement to protect Mauna Kea, perhaps in connection with other struggles to protect sacred sites near your home.
On behalf of the Conference Organizing Committee of the Critical Ethnic Studies Association 2015, we would like to provide all participants and presenters first, with an update on the current political struggles here at York University and second, to release the Conference Schedule and the plenary details.
The Critical Ethnic Studies Association Working Group is excited to inform you that we are currently considering a resolution endorsing and honoring the call of Palestinian civil society to boycott Israeli academic institutions.
