A Message of Solidarity and Action
Together we stand in solidarity with our black community, our students, faculty, staff and administrators to fight against systemic inequity, injustice and racism. What we are witnessing across our nation and how deeply it is affecting us is based on our own frame of reference – our values, our beliefs, and our personal experiences. We recognize that we are all experiencing this movement in our own way.
We also acknowledge that our students, employees and community are still processing the pain of the culmination of police killings, and the list of names keeps growing. We are tired. It must stop. This is the time for action and sustainable transformation in our communities.
We are hopeful that we will turn our collective sadness, anger and frustration into individual and community action to actively confront anti-blackness and systemic racism. As our college community comes together (virtually), to dialogue about our individual and collective experiences, we have also begun to identify the actions that we will take as an institution that will lead to systemic change for our students and the communities we serve. It is our responsibility to restore faith and hope to our campus.
This begins with each of us reaffirming LPC’s Mission, Vision and Values and staying vigilant to address systemic and structural inequities that impede student success. We are committed to doing the work and taking the necessary action to ensure student success for our black students at Las Positas College.
