Div. 31 is providing statements given to us by each of the following SPTAs. We appreciate and applaud these statements. However, please note that these statements are provided for informational purposes only, and the presentation of them does not imply Div. 31 endorsement of each individual statement. Updates made by the SPTAs will be subsequently posted on the Div. 31 listserv and posted at this site.
We at Div. 31 have also created statements against racism and discrimination (PDF, 203KB) and more specifically, against racism and discrimination impacting Asians, Blacks, Indigenous, and Hispanics (PDF, 236KB). We encourage the ongoing member commitments to equity, diversity, and inclusion. We acknowledge the innovative work that goes on within each jurisdiction, but often this work goes unknown outside of the jurisdiction. Instead of reinventing the wheel, we invite SPTAs to take advantage, maximize efficiency by combining efforts through pooling of these resources to further develop their own anti-racism and discrimination responses against racism and discrimination and commitments to equity, diversity, and inclusion.
This is an official statement of Division 31 of the American Psychological Association and does not represent the position of the American Psychological Association or any of its other divisions or subunits.
