We use the phrase "underserved" to address all of the populations we cater to:
Womxn and Fem Students
Socio-Economically Disadvantaged Students
Students with Disabilities
Students of Color
However, we do not claim that our organization, nor the resources or services we offer, "...are viable solutions to the destructions of settler colonialism, capitalism, and anti-blackness that have enacted," (Subversive Thread).
The work we do here at Central Valley Scholars is important, and the services we offer to students are helping in ways we couldn't imagine. And we recognize while these services are vital and helpful, they do not dismantle the centuries-old systemic forms of oppression placed upon the communities we serve.
