Standing Together Against Racism and Discrimination June 12, 2020

PSR and more than 150 organizations and practitioners in the peace and security and foreign policy communities — including our partners in the nuclear weapons policy community — have released an open letter committing to “stand together against the acts of racism and discrimination that are structurally and culturally built into the foundation of this country.”

This effort was led by Women of Color Advancing Peace, Security and Conflict Transformation (WCAPS), an organization working to advance the leadership and professional development of women of color in the fields of international peace, security, and conflict transformation.

Signatories to the letter pledge to work together to “change the face of international peace and security” so that it is more reflective of the diversity of the country, include more Black people and people of color on boards of directors and advisory committees, educate staff on the prevention of racism and discrimination, and take other actions. We are indebted to WCAPS leadership and their offer to engage in discussions on how we will hold ourselves accountable for these commitments.
