HDSI and HDSR statements on anti-racism
The Harvard Data Science Initiative condemns the murders of eight people in Atlanta on March 16. Six of the eight victims were Asian women. Their killings took place against a backdrop of increasing violence and violent rhetoric towards Asian Americans and Asian American women in particular. These facts underscore the importance of recognizing and combating the pervasive systemic racism and misogyny in our society, and we are reminded of the important role data science can play in uncovering and addressing those and other forms of discrimination.
The Harvard Data Science Initiative and the Harvard Data Science Review share the grief and outrage of people throughout the United States and around the world over the murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery and countless other unnamed Black lives. We abhor the racial inequity that is felt every day by people across our country.
