The Executive Council of the Latinx Studies Association shares our profound concern over the war and destructive violence that is taking place against the peoples in Gaza, including Palestinians, and against Jews in Israel. As an Association that represents the interests of a rich diversity of Latinx people in the United States and globally, we honor and acknowledge our Jewish and Arab/Muslim heritages, of which we stand proud. We denounce antisemitism, racism, apartheid, and settler colonial violence of all kinds. The devastating violence in this region of the world that has taken the lives of thousands of innocent civilians, including children, is an egregious atrocity against human rights. We exhort all involved to work toward a ceasefire and eventual peace. Our world deserves nothing less.
