Affirmative Action

Original Facilitators: Sequoia Rose and Priya Pandey

Affirmative Action isn't all just about quotas. In this workshop we will navigate thehistory and significance behind affirmative action, and how it has been continuously challenged throughout history. From the Bakke decision to Abigail Fisher, we will be looking at some common misconceptions on affirmative action policies, and what we can do to dismantle them and list students of color on campus. Affirmative Action isn't just about increasing representation on campuses, but also working to make sure that students of color feel safe and welcomed.
