In Solidarity with Black Society Members and Black Lives Matter

Dear Society of Ethnobiology Members,

The Society of Ethnobiology unequivocally supports Black Lives Matter, both in the United States and around the world. We condemn any hate or violence against Black people and Black communities. We recognize the deeply rooted structures that allow such hate and violence to perpetuate. The Society of Ethnobiology denounces the use of state and police violence against their own persons and calls for new and better leadership at all levels to stop the violence against Black people.
