Dear Rutgers Students, Staff, and Faculty,

As a program dedicated to creating inclusive, transformative, and culturally responsive curriculum and programming at Rutgers University, Rutgers English Language Institute (RELI) stands in solidarity with the black community and the Black Lives Matters movement, and vehemently condemns the perpetuation of the systemic racism, oppression, and injustice that led to the brutal murder of George Floyd.  RELI is founded on a mission of social justice and we are committed to amplifying the voices of the diverse cultural, racial, ethnic, and linguistic backgrounds of our community.  RELI asserts unwavering commitment to addressing social injustice on a local and global level, with a translingual curriculum centered on critical cultural awareness.  Within the University, RELI provides resources for inclusive teaching practices and creates awareness of implicit biases in the classroom and ways to address and transform them. RELI is an inclusive community and safe space for ALL Rutgers students, faculty, and staff not only in name, but in action, and in every interaction.
