SIGARCH, SIGMICRO, TCCA, and TCuARCH join together to express our denunciation of racism and to stand together, particularly in support of African American members of our community, as representatives of our research community. Together, we mourn the innocent Black lives violently taken recently, without cause, including but not limited to George Floyd, Breonna Taylor and Ahmaud Arbery.

CASA, the Computer Architecture Student Association, is an independent student-run organization that spans across all of the SIGs and TCs in the computer architecture community. CASA's vision is to ensure student wellbeing and foster a sense of belonging, with the goal of nurturing a vibrant, inviting, and productive student community. Since its formation in October 2020, CASA has spearheaded several initiatives in the community, including student mentoring activities, raising awareness about student wellbeing, and events for socializing and building connections.
Recent events organized by CASA include a summer reading group on diversity, equity, and inclusion in the architecture community, a WCAE 2021 paper on the state of mentoring in the community and the need for long-term mentoring programs, and the online ArchChat social hour.
