Kansas Division of the International Association for Identification
The Kansas Division of the International Association for Identification actively promotes an environment of inclusion, tolerance, respect, and anti-racism for all of its members. Recent events have prompted responses from law enforcement agencies, forensic science organizations, and the scientific community as a whole. It is our responsibility to condemn acts of racism, violence, and discrimination within our organization and in the communities we live in. We promote tolerance and embrace diversity. It is not enough to remain silent; we must publicly and directly express our thoughts and beliefs in order to promote change and eradicate inequality in our society. We stand with our black colleagues and offer ongoing, unconditional support.
If you feel you have experienced discrimination of any kind at one of our conferences, events, or in any interaction with our organization or if you would like to discuss any of the above statement, please do not hesitate to reach out to any of the members on the KDIAI board.
During these extraordinary times, we are facing an unprecedented challenge with the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. We place a premium on the health and well-being of our membership, departments, board members, and the community.
Due to concerns surrounding the Coronavirus (COVID-19), we have decided to cancel our 2020 Spring Educational Conference. We look forward to hosting the same speakers and topics for our 2021 Spring Educational Conference.
Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions or concerns.
