The following statement was issued by the New Media Consortium in response to recent events that impact our community.

The New Media Consortium (NMC) connects people at the intersection of imagination and technology to spark innovation, learning, and creativity. The NMC believes that it is important at this time to reaffirm our values, which include respecting the full personhood and worth of all those with whom we share the gift of learning, regardless of gender, race, national origin, or sexual identity. We condemn those who would use or condone violence to intimidate, assault, or kill others in service of ideologies of gendered, racial, or nationalistic superiority. We are a global organization that places the human potential for good at the center of our organization’s work.
