21-Day Racial Equity Challenge

In light of the murders of Breonna Taylor, George Floyd, and Rayshard Brooks by police, the murder/lynching of Ahmaud Arbery by racist citizens, and the continued racist violence directed at Black Americans, Saint Michael’s College understands our responsibility as an educational institution to make efforts towards guiding our community towards a stance of anti-racism and eliminating barriers that allow racist systems and ideologies to continue to thrive.

Saint Michael’s College continues to acknowledge the work that must still be done to confront the institutionalized white supremacy deeply-engrained in each of our country’s establishments.  As a predominantly white institution, we understand we must continue in the work to dismantle the racial hierarchy that harms our community by readily facilitating and engaging in difficult conversations.

21-Day Racial Equity and Habit-Building Challenge

The Diversity and Inclusion Council is issuing the 21-Day Challenge for Racial Equity and Habit-Building in an effort to encourage anti-racist work within the Saint Michael’s College community. We encourage you to begin the challenge at any time, and continue to reflect on lessons learned both internally and with your peers.

Habits require consistent practice. Your mission, if you decide to participate, is to select and complete one suggestion from the link above –or your own resources– long and short readings, podcast, films, practices and actions, and more – every day.
