Letter regarding the Political Climate

On behalf of SSSP’s Board of Directors, President Donileen R. Loseke and Executive Officer Héctor Delgado wrote to the SSSP membership to express concerns regarding significant cleavages that continue to exist along racial, ethnic, religious, and gender lines in the United States and in other parts of the world. In the wake of a very contentious and divisive U.S. presidential campaign and election, the role of social scientists and educators has never been more important. Members are encouraged to initiate and/or participate in a dialog on the Society’s listserv, report hate incidents to the Southern Poverty Law Center or the Anti-Defamation League, and submit a resolution for the Montreal Annual Meeting next August.
