RACIAL JUSTICE COALITION VIRTUAL MEETING: The Racial Justice Coalition will meet at 6 p.m. via Webex.
As a black student at West Conn, I’ve always felt out of place. Racism is very alive at this institution, and since I’ve walked on campus I’ve had this burning fire in my stomach to change things. Everyday I’m frustrated and angry. And I know that if you’re black, you feel me. If you’re Hispanic, you feel me. If you’re Asian, you feel me. If you’re Native American, you feel me. These feelings are what helped to create the Racial Justice Coalition or RJC. This is a student and faculty led group determined to spotlight and eradicate racism from this school. Enough is enough. Enough silence. Enough photo ops. Enough nonsense from this school. This isn’t a PR move. This is real. This is my life. And this is your life. At the virtual meeting, will get to meet the other members of the RJC, and learn more about their mission. We are all on the same team, whether you’re a student or a faculty member. Because at the end of the day, your race is something you live with. So don’t be afraid to speak up. Speak your truth. Spill your hearts. Because we will change this school one way or another. I will be leaving the Webex link underneath this message. I hope to see many familiar and unfamiliar faces.
