RISD Printmaking Department 
Dear RISD Printmaking Undergraduates, 

As graduate students, we want to express our support for risdARC and other RISD student antiracism efforts and suggest ways for our department to more specifically challenge racial injustice—while also improving the department more broadly. Attached is a group statement outlining concerns and possible solutions. We hope that our voices will help as we move forward this term and we are committed to continuing these conversations throughout the coming academic year and beyond our graduation.


Sincerely,

Class of 2021 MFA Printmaking Students
