Black People Meet @ ASMS

In conjunction with ASMS 2020 Reboot a special webinar in support of #shutdownSTEM and in consideration of the systemic racial injustice that blacks face on a daily basis was hosted.

This session sponsored by Black People Meet @ ASMS covered these topics: explain the negative effects of systemic racism; highlight the struggles and needs of black mass spectrometrists; provide resources to be effective supporters/allies/advocates for NO LONGER perpetuating systemic racism; and call non-blacks to act by not only providing words of support, but to also utilize positions of influence to demand a change.
