Ongoing Anti-Racist Workspaces for White-Identifying Students

Ithaca College Students of Color have called on White-Identifying students, faculty, and staff to do the internal work necessary to be anti-racist. These ongoing workspaces are designed for White-identifying students to understand the many layers of systemic racism in order to dismantle them, and to understand their role in this anti-racist work.

Dear students,

We have created a year-long plan to host anti-racist workspaces for white-identifying students to be in community to learn, grow, challenge one another, and strive to shift from “I am not racist” to truly understanding what it means to be anti-racist in thought and practice. Whether you are just beginning your journey of understanding racism and what it means to be anti-racist or are well-practiced and disciplined at interrupting the script of white supremacy, you are welcome and encouraged to participate. This series was created in collaboration with the Center for IDEAS, and will be among the SACL Signature Events. 

For the fall semester, workspaces will be held on Fridays from 11am-12pm EST unless otherwise noted. While you can chose which workspaces you would like to RSVP for, we encourage you to attend as many as possible as these concepts are all interrelated. You can view and register for all upcoming events on the Center for IDEAS engage portal or on the White-Identifying, Anti-Racist Workspaces engage portal. You must register for each event individually to receive important resources and the Zoom link. Click on "View More Events" to see the entire series. 

Please consider registering for the next three upcoming workspaces:

We also have a newly created website to share resources and opportunities for further learning. Here you can see the list topics for all upcoming workspaces. 

If you have any questions, concerns, or requests for accommodations, please email selebiary@ithaca.edu. 

Please join us in this work.

Sincerely,

Samantha Elebiary, BOLD Program Director, selebiary@ithaca.edu 

Elyse Nepa, Coordinator – Public Safety and Emergency Management, enepa@ithaca.edu
