PARC's Response to Anti-Blackness

On August 25, 2020, the PARC team sent this message to our listserv:

As an anti-violence organization, we see our work at PARC as intersectional and believe that racism is violence, not conflict. Although we strive in our work to address and confront oppression head on, we are embedded in a system and have been socialized to invalidate Black lives. 

In order to address our own anti-Blackness, we have looked at our practices and have identified specific ways to uplift our Black community through our work.

We recognize that growth continues to happen and we will revisit this plan every semester at minimum, and continue to solicit feedback. If you have any questions, concerns, or ideas, please contact us at parc@brandeis.edu or anonymously through our feedback form
 

Sincerely,

the PARC team
