On Monday, May 25, our community had a stark reminder of the continued disparities in our society as a police officer killed another African American man while arresting him. We know the excuses we will hear, but none matter. The man should be alive. His name was George Floyd.
At the Science Museum, advocating for justice and equity is one of our foundational values – one to which we are fiercely committed. With that commitment and in partnership with you and our community, we will continue the work of our mission to inspire learning, inform policy, and improve lives.
On March 28, 2018, the Science Museum’s Board of Trustees approved our Statement of Equity and Inclusion. This statement acknowledges the Museum’s role in creating systems of injustice and inequity. Our Trustees, senior leaders, and staff are working to make the Museum - and ourselves - a part of the change that society needs now. Read the full statement at smm.org/equity.
