we stand against racism and social injustice

Temple Education Abroad is committed to standing against racism and social injustice in the U.S. and around the world. We condemn the unwarranted violence and senseless killings of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and countless others in the black community.
