AIAA UMN Public Statement
In response to the killing of George Floyd, our chapter of AIAA has issued a public statement which you can find here. A brief excerpt is below.
The AIAA University of Minnesota - Twin Cities Student Chapter Leadership would like to offer our deepest condolences to the family and friends of George Floyd as well as anyone who has been struggling from the events happening around the country. We realize this is a sensitive time for many, and we want you all to know that we stand with you and share the indignation that you may have been feeling in these hard times... We will do as much as we can to educate ourselves and make a plan to enact change. We will begin reaching out to those with different backgrounds and ideas to formally create an initiative to increase diversity and promote a welcoming environment within the University of Minnesota AIAA chapter. We will share the plan once it is complete - you can expect an update regarding this plan in early July.
