Past SRA Statements on Anti-Racism

SRA is committed to promoting anti-racism within our organization, developmental science, and society at large. We define anti-racism as racial equity created and maintained by interactions between equitable psychological factors, such as beliefs, feelings, and behavior rooted in equity, and equitable sociopolitical factors, such as laws, policies, and institutions that ensure equity for all (Roberts & Rizzo, 2020). Having an anti-racist perspective means challenging, interrupting, and eliminating all forms of racism within ourselves and our spheres of influence (Derman-Sparks & Phillips, 1997).
