We join our voices with countless others across the country in an unequivocal condemnation of police brutality, institutionalized racism, and all forms of anti-black violence. As a scientific community, we acknowledge that our own past is filled with examples where we have brought violence against Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC), from histories as overt as the Tuskegee Syphilis trials ( www.history.com, 2019a) or the unethical use of Puerto Rican women as subjects in birth control trials ( www.history.com, 2019b) to the more pernicious acts of everyday racism that occur in our colleges and universities. Unfortunately, we are still not far from this history. This past week, George Floyd was killed in Minneapolis, and as COVID-19 ravages the globe and affects all of us in deeply painful ways, our BIPOC communities have disproportionately carried the burden ( www.embracerace.org). However, insofar as we have been complicit in racism, we also hold the tools for a robust participation in the work of anti-racism. What we do with students in our classrooms and in our labs is not separate from the work of racial justice. We all have our part to play. Indeed, we as scientists must marshal all our skills (yes, even pipetting!) toward creating a brighter future and more equitable world. As scholar-teachers, we must create neuroscience as an inclusive space for our students, especially for our students of color. FUN commits to taking concrete steps to further educate, equip, and heal our community.
