21-Day Racial Equity Challenge
In light of the recent 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 acknowledges that there is work to do to confront the deeply-engrained, institutionalized white supremacy in this country,
As the College prepares for the return of our students to our predominantly white institution, we must do the work to dismantle the white supremacy that harms our community and we must be ready and able to encourage and facilitate 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. The Challenge will begin on July 1, 2020.
Habits require consistent practice. Your mission, if you decide to participate, is to select and complete one suggestion from the link above – long and short readings, podcast, films, practices and actions, and more – every day, and to sign up for and engage in the three conversations.
As part of the Challenge, the College will hold a series of community discussions on Wednesday, July 8th, at noon, Wednesday, July 15th, at 3 p.m., and Wednesday, July 22nd, at 9 a.m.
