Time Scavengers Stands in Solidarity with the Black Community

Time Scavengers is devastated by the murders of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, Michael Lorenzo Dean, Tony McDade, Regis Korchinski-Paquet, and all other Black people whose lives were tragically cut short. The continued abuse suffered by the Black community at the hands of police officers and systematic racism is unacceptable. We support and stand in solidarity with our Black friends, colleagues, collaborators, community, and neighbors to dismantle white supremacy and build a society that values and embraces Black freedom and Black lives. 

Our team is dedicated to educational outreach and science communication for the public. Science is not conducted in a vacuum, nor is it apolitical. As Black scientists have been oppressed within the academy both historically and presently, Time Scavengers will continue to promote and amplify the voices of Black scientists and other people of color. We reaffirm our dedicated commitment to highlighting diverse scientific voices on our website and in all of our work. Science is for everyone.

We invite our community and friends to understand and combat racism, be productive Black allies, and actively become anti-racist. Use the links below to find active means to follow, support, listen, and learn from the Black community.
