Statement on the Mass Shooting in Buffalo, NY
The abhorrent white supremacist killing of ten people in Buffalo, NY, sadly and urgently reminds all of us who teach writing, yet again, about the importance of anti-racist teaching. AWAC mourns the victims and condemns the perpetrator and the white supremacist beliefs that motivated him and that are fueling increases in racial violence across our country. We reaffirm our statement on anti-racist teaching linked here.
The Association for Writing Across the Curriculum (AWAC) promotes writing instruction and education across all contexts for teachers, teacher-scholars, writing center directors, writing program leaders, administrators, and graduate and undergraduate students. Our goal is to impact productively writing and writing instruction in meaningful, inclusive, and actionable ways.
