Unlearning Racism in Geoscience (URGE) is a program that I founded to use the existing social science literature to design and implement policies that will lead to more justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion in geoscience. URGE aims to help the community (1) assess where geoscience is in the fight for racial justice, (2) deepen its knowledge of history and policies, (3) develop anti-racist structures and policies, (4) expand local conversations to a national stage with equal access to resources and expert opinion, and (5) develop intimate groups that will hold members accountable. URGE is funded by the National Science Foundation.
