We are a multi-racial, multi-skilled, intersectional, non-hierarchical, anti-racist student movement.
Race on Campus is a collective of undergraduate anti-racist activists. We are committed to dismantling systems of oppression within institutions of higher education. We aim to realize our collective vision for an Academic Festival, combining critical thought with community building and a little somethin’ that is often forgotten: radical celebration. We hope to provide a space where student leaders and activists from college campuses across California are able to connect, engage, learn with, and honor one another.
We envision a space where we acknowledge the constant oppression people of color face, while also validating the historical work done by activists before us. We work, neither to deny the progress yet to be made, nor to stay in a place of mourning. Instead, we strive to inspire and empower rising student leaders to interrogate the relationship between race and class/gender/sexuality within the U.S. university experience.
During this academic festival, we will engage in collective liberation through the exchange of ideas, art, and praxis, and the creation of community.
