NEOA Board of Directors Statement On Recent Events
Today, as the entire nation seeks peace and justice, the New England Educational Opportunity Association (NEOA) stands in solidarity with Black communities and allies, including our students, participants and alumni impacted daily by racism, violence, oppression and systemic bias. We unite in the call for an end to racism and racial violence.
We stand with and uphold those who mourn the unjust loss of George Floyd, one among countless others senselessly killed in recent times.
We call attention to the fight to eradicate inequality, to advance our long-cherished values of educational opportunity, and to make this world a better place by developing the next generation of leaders.
TRIO programs, established during the 1960's War on Poverty and rooted in the civil rights movement, are deeply committed to assisting low-income, first-generation students, and students with disabilities, to overcome these barriers through the pursuit of higher education.
Our students, families, staff, and alumni of color are valued and essential members of the NEOA community. We join in their anger, pain and search for change.
Black Lives Matter.
