General Information
State Center Community College District leadership has already issued a symbolic anti-racist resolution. The SCCCD is considering a formal resolution to advocate for "removing structural and systemic barriers for students, faculty, and other employees; working collaboratively with government agencies, businesses and community-based organizations 'to provide race-conscious decision making in support of Students of Color;' and providing ongoing professional development 'to normalize a culture of anti-racism.'" Student and local activist groups have already indicated the passage of the resolution will not be sufficient. No mandatory Critical Race Training sessions are yet required of students.
