GNPS Statement on Black Lives Matter

As a result of discussions with our members, the Board of Directors of GNPS has understood the depth of our shared commitment to the principles of equal justice and equal access that the Black Lives Matter movement has highlighted. We wanted to go beyond making a simple statement of support and have sought concrete actions we could take.  
For those who wish to help, the GNPS Advocacy Committee has suggested volunteering with a project of the Center for Common Ground called Reclaim Our Vote (ROV), to directly address the issue of Black voter suppression.  ROV is dedicated to empowering under-represented voters in communities of color by increasing voter registration and reducing the barriers to voting. Reclaim Our Vote is a non-partisan effort, and they provide online training and supporting materials.  
For more information, view the Reclaim Our Vote website.
