Statement of Solidarity - Embracing a Culture of Inclusion Program

June 4, 2020

Dear SRJC community,

At a time when so many are so done with what is so broken, change must occur in order to support our Black/African American colleagues, friends and family as well as all members of our community.  Individuals will decide how to participate, becoming agents united for positive change, and the more we can work together to insist on change, the greater potential for impact in the change that we promote. 

Since Fall 2016, a group of SRJC staff, faculty, and administrators have come together with support provided by SRJC Human Resources to participate in developing our Embracing a Culture of Inclusion (ECI) program. This program offers community-building experiences to promote understanding and equality and create space for sharing our truths. ECI invites all members of our SRJC family to join us in a quest to offer support and to be allies and change agents. Please contact Sussanah Sydney or Sarah Hopkins if you are interested in being added to our distribution list for future events and conversations.

Our hope is that in addressing generational injustice, and by listening to each other, and taking timely and critical actions, this crisis can lead to a better future.
