Thank you for showing your support for racial justice, diversity, and inclusion in your lab!

Listening to and uplifting voices from these communities even when they challenge your assumptions and make you uncomfortable.
Speaking out and pushing for change when you see microaggressions or institutional policies that disadvantage these communities, both within your lab and within the larger campus community
Making space and time for trainees to heal, take care of their communities, or fight for justice, and continuing to provide financial, career, and other support while they do so
Donating, when you have the means, to organizations that promote the success and well-being of marginalized communities in STEM or in the larger community. Examples include (but are not limited to):
