A Statement Reaffirming Our Values

 

Dear ARNOVA Community,


The Board of Directors of the Association for Research on Nonprofit Organizations and Voluntary Action (ARNOVA) strongly condemns all forms of violence, brutality, and racism against Black communities around the world. The murder of George Floyd in the United States comes at the heels of a global pandemic that has disproportionately harmed Black communities. Our hearts and thoughts go out to all who are hurting from violence, brutality, and racism stemming from centuries of injustice and complacency.

As scholars, educators, and practice leaders in a field that focuses most intently on private action for the public good, we reaffirm our support for a democracy that allows for the freedom of expression as well as diverse thought, opinions, and actions that aim to strengthen our society. Our conference this year focuses on just this: the role that people play in reshaping our communities and institutions during times of disruptions. The right and freedom to peacefully protest is at the heart of democracy and civil society, in all countries around the globe. This is how social change happens and the Pride month that has just started is a clear reminder of that.

To our members, we want you to know that: We hear you; we see you; we stand with you. ARNOVA is first and foremost a community. We are a diverse group of scholars, educators, and practice leaders working hard to improve civil society and human life. Improving human life requires racial and social justice, dignity, and equality for all. During these times, we call upon all of our members to renew their commitment to inclusion, equity, and community in the face of acts of individual, institutional, and systemic discrimination and racism.
