Anti-Racism & Equity Practices (AREP)

Statement on Anti-Racism and Equity Practices

The Journal of Trauma Studies in Education is dedicated to purposeful and intentional engagement in antiracist and equitable practice[s] throughout all of our processes. In doing so, we have established a sub-group to lead the charge in ensuring the board, reviewers, and authors remain vigilant in challenging their own personal biases, recognizing and rooting out racism and oppressive systems, and addressing these issues head on. It is our commitment to go beyond making this statement, but to embody it in all aspects of our work.
