Building an Anti-Racist Classroom

Of the many inequities brought to light by COVID-19, the disparities that BIPOC students face in the American education system have proven to be the most complex. Creating an inclusive and anti-racist educational experience that helps students achieve their full potential is made even more difficult in the virtual classroom.

This Friday, 2/26/21, at noon. Join Mills Ethnic Studies Program Head, Dr. Natalee Kēhaulani Bauer, along with Dr. Shawn Ginwright, Professor of Africana Studies at San Francisco State University; Dr. Kyla Johnson-Trammel, superintendent of the Oakland Unified School District; and moderator Dr. Allison Briscoe-Smith, director of diversity, equity and inclusion at the Wright Institute Clinical Program for a discussion on equitable education and the challenges and opportunities offered by online schooling.

TAKE ACTION: Save Ethnic Studies

January 16, 2021

TAKE ACTION TO DEFEND ETHNIC STUDIES
In the last days of the Trump regime, here in California we have a huge opportunity to fight for racial justice.

We are concerned that the dangerous legacy of Trump will live on if the California Department of Education (CDE) continues to cave to pressure from racist, anti-Palestinian, right-wing groups attacking Arab American Studies and the spirit of Ethnic Studies.

They will cease accepting comments on January 21st, the day after Trump leaves office. California is using a public comment email as their primary method of hearing from the public. And we want to make sure we make our voices loud and clear.

After the events of last week, and the uprisings over this last year, it would be outrageous for the country’s largest education system to stop schools from teaching about race and power, and centering the strategies of Black, Brown and Indigenous communities fighting for change.

Our campus altár is up through November 2nd. If you're on campus, come by the Tea Shop, you’ll see it close by....

We've placed there mementos of our beloveds, those who came before. You are welcome to pause there, offer something for the altár, as a memory, as a prayer, as an offering to those gone on ahead.

Some of the offerings mark the violent passing of those killed by police brutality, as we continue the antiracist work ahead, as we insist on that prayer, that Black Lives Matter. We remember the struggles we have today are long roads walked by too many others.

There's healing work to be done always. Our ofrendas during this time of Dias de Muertos continues in this way.

Save Our Red Dresses! . Mills College - despite portraying like they support the Red Dress Project on campus - is wanting to take them down just one day after installation. . The Red Dress Project was created to raise awareness of the issue of Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and honor individual cases of our stolen sistars. Each dress is meant to represent a single woman, girl or Two Spirit. . Although the project has gone through all the correct processes for installation, and was signed off by Dean of Students Chicora Martin, they are worried of the pushback it could have on campus and would rather it be removed to protect themselves. . Email Chicora Martin at [email protected] or call at (510)-430-3189 and express your support for the Red Dress Project on campus! . Don’t let these colonizing institutions control our freedom of speech and expression, especially when it comes down to issues like MMIW. Don’t let these colonizing institutions pretend like they support Indigenous people and voices!
Mills College's Indigenous Women's Alliance welcomes Morning Star Gali in discussion of Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women in the greater Bay Area. As our campus celebrates Women's History Month, we would like to bring awareness, remember, and honor our sistars that are no longer with us. We have organized a campus-wide Red Dress Project to take place during the presentation and welcome the community to observe and take in the project as a whole. Morning Star has been a vocal advocate for the issue and families of Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women in the greater Bay Area and uses her platform to raise awareness of their stories. She will be sharing with the Mills and Oakland community her experience in the field of MMIW and it's growing movement. Please join us as we welcome her to our campus!
