 #CCLiftUp for equity and diversity

The tragic circumstances surrounding the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis makes clear yet again that systemic discrimination and unjust racial disparities continue to plague our country. 

Those of us who work tirelessly for good through our community colleges and what they represent must stand united with those afflicted against the base instincts of others among us that seek to divide, denigrate and subjugate on the basis of race, ethnicity, religion, national origin, disability, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, and other differences.

The best way to give hope to those who have been victimized is to share what you are doing at your college and in your community to uplift people of color and those who are under-represented. We welcome you to submit your #CCLiftUp stories to ICCTA at [email protected], and we will share them with our ICCTA community.
