Statement on Racial Injustice
The American Institute of Mathematics and the Math Teachers’ Circle Network stand in solidarity with the Black community and with peaceful protesters across the nation and the world in outrage, grief, and despair over the brutal police killing of George Floyd and many other Black individuals before him. As a community of educators, we reaffirm our commitment to diversity and inclusion in the fundamental human endeavor of mathematics. Let us draw upon the power and beauty of mathematics as we work together to bring about systemic change and greater justice for our students and our society.
MTCs empower teachers’ voices and experiences
