Statement on HBCU Threats During Black History Month

The Association for Environmental Studies and Sciences is deeply troubled and concerned that many historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs) have received bomb threats recently, including on the first day of February, which is recognized as Black History Month in the United States. We recognize these senseless threats are a coordinated attack being used as a tool to intimidate, harass, and traumatize the students, staff, and faculty of HBCUs. We stand in solidarity with our HBCU colleagues and support their right to a safe and healthy learning environment without intimidation.
