Special Announcement

The Central States Anthropological Society endorses the “ABA Statement Against Police Violence and Anti-Black Racism” posted on 6 June 2020. As the only place-based section within the AAA, we recognize that the Midwest has been an important site for activism. From Black Lives Matter protests in 2014 Ferguson and NoDAPL protests at Standing Rock in 2016 to recent events in Minneapolis, we affirm the important and ongoing struggles for life, justice, and sovereignty in communities that we are a part of and care deeply about.  We encourage all anthropologists to read the ABA’s full statement.
