YLNG Social Justice Statement

December 31, 2020

As a community Yale Latino Networking Group (YLNG) deeply cares, welcomes and respects diversity. YLNG actively vows to support our black and brown brothers and sisters against the multifaceted pervasive nature of racism in our country and racial inequalities. We pledge to purposefully analyze, identify, discuss, and challenge issues of race and color and those that impact our organization, communities, and systems.

Most importantly, we will challenge ourselves to:

  • Understand and correct any inequities
  • Affirm our identity as an anti-racist affinity group
  • Collaborate and implement strategies that dismantle racism

Injustice and corruption will never be transformed by keeping them hidden, but only by bringing them out into the light and confronting them with the power of love.” ~ Martin Luther King, Jr.
