Black Lives Matter

The Latin American Recruitment and Educational Services program stands in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement and remains deeply committed to advocating against the violence that continues to be inflicted upon Black lives in the United States. As a program that is grounded in social justice ideals, we condemn any form of racism, oppression, and violence imposed on people of color and our communities.

As we take a moment to reflect on how we can better serve our students and communities of color, we ask all institutions of higher education to do the same.

Black Lives DO MATTER in the United States, in Latin America, and throughout the rest of the world. The LARES program stands in solidarity and as an ally with those who continue to face systemic oppression and injustice.

We see you, we hear you, we are here for you and with you! We stand together always.

LARES siempre esta contigo
