    Equity Statement

    Anti-racist and trauma-informed education not only raises our awareness of racism and trauma experienced by Black, Latinx, Indigenous, Asian, and all marginalized peoples, but it also recognizes that we must be purposeful in addressing racism and trauma. In August 2017 Larson and Berry made several calls to the mathematics education community in their response to the unrest in Charlottesville, Virginia. In this message we renew these calls. As educators, teachers of mathematics, and a Council, we reiterate our position:

    • We support the use of mathematics as an analytic tool to challenge power, privilege, and oppression.
    • We encourage all educators to challenge systems of oppression that privilege some while disadvantaging others.
    • We encourage all educators to create socially and emotionally safe spaces for themselves, their students, and colleagues.
