Black Issues & Topics Webinars
Inclusivity is a paramount value within our organization and we have sought to create a space for all involved with our organization, students, and themtors. However, we recognize that the majority of students currently served by our organization are non-Black Latinx. We recognize that anti-Blackness exists within our Latinx communities, and this, too, affects our relationships at home and with community members. We also recognize that “inclusivity” is not enough. We - as a community and as non-profit leaders - must do more to break apart racist systems and the privileges afforded by them.
In response, we are reserving four of our webinars for students to lead in relation to the Black Lives Matter Movement. Use our space and networks to educate our community members on this movement and/or other Black issues and topics within the Central Valley. This is very open-ended and we are inviting all students (high school, community college, undergraduates, etc) to apply. Each webinar host will recieve a $250 stipend.
