Urban Geography supports Black Lives Matter. The journal stands behind the Black Geographies Speciality Group of the American Association of Geographers and its call for “Transformative Racial Justice” (https://blackgeographies.org/). It stands in solidarity with, and will continue to provide a platform for, all those engaged in anti-racist, anti-colonial, feminist, queer, and trans struggles around the world. 2020 marks the 40th anniversary of Urban Geography. We continue to use the means at our disposal, such as our annual lecture series, our seminar/workshop award and our ECR prize, appointments to the editorial board and the review process itself to support academic work by Black geographers and other scholars around the world struggling against structural violence.
